i have had a tragic loss in my life. my only son PFC Douglas Cordo had died in Afghan on august 19th 2011 he was only 20 years old.. he was a American hero who died for our country. I'm still lost for words. I'm so empty inside that i cant feel anything.. how do you every get over this. He was in US Army. i couldn't be any prouder of my son. He was funny kid. always made everyone laugh. I'm not sure how to get threw this. but I'm trying. its like my heart has been ripped out of my body and it will never come back. a part of me has died with him.. He was my whole life. my everything. he was my son.. your American soldier who was fighting to keep us safe. i ask of all of you to pray for my son and all the soldier who are still over there trying to keep us safe..
