Ohio loses a golfer
According to the News Herald in Ohio, Army Spc. Allen J. Knop of Munson Township was killed in Iraq recently, after spending 13 months in combat, then reenlisting.
From the News Herald:
“He was a golfer and he was always very careful with his money. He didn’t like to spend it freely,” Allen’s father William Knop said. “But before he left this time, he went and bought a new golf set for himself.”
William said he also bought an expensive new driver with the set.
“It was this brand new driver, like a $300 driver, which was really kind of out of character for him.”
He said when Allen got into the car and started driving away from the house, he stopped and turned around (and summoned his 16-year-old brother, Max).
“So he got out of the car and walked over to his brother,” William said. “He had that driver with him and he said, ‘Here, Max. Keep an eye on this until I get back.’ “
Best wishes to the entire Knop family, and other families dealing with the same type of grief.
