As we reflect on the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, I think it’s safe to say we’re all more somber this year due to the recent loss of our Marines in Afghanistan, including Wyomingite U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum.

In Wyoming, we don’t operate under six degrees of separation, it’s generally one. I personally have friends who went to school with Rylee’s father. His loss certainly hits home, as does the loss of the other 12 Marines.
