A Hero Passes

One of the most inspiring military men I've ever heard of died yesterday. Carl Brashear, who was immortalized in the movie Men of Honor, died in the Portsmouth Naval Hospital. Chief Brashear was the first black Navy Diver, and the first black Master Diver. His story has always touched me; it's sad to think that he won't be here anymore, to inspire young servicepeople.
