Team Combat Kirk
My name is Jessica and I am a Gold Star Sister. My younger brother, Sgt Josh Kirk was killed in action during the Battle of COP Keating, October 3rd, 2009. He was one of 8 men who lost their lives defending an indefensible outpost. You can read about the battle in a recent book written by former ABC White House correspondent and current CNN anchor, Jake Tapper. "The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor".
My brother had a larger then life personality and he continues to inspire me to do more, be more, give more. I volunteer for Run for the Fallen Idaho because I care about Idaho's fallen heroes and know that events like these help bring comfort and support to the families left behind. I think it is important for people to have opportunities to get to know our fallen heroes as real people who lived amazing lives. Real people, not just a name, not a number, but a loved son, or daughter, a loving father or mother, a sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, best friend.
