LCpl. Kyle Renehan -- Rest In Peace, Marine.

(Continued from here)

Damn it!

On 11/29 Beth posted this:

One of the regulars in the VRWC chat room, Spencer (SLG) has an urgent prayer request. His brother, Lance Corporal Kyle Renehan, USMC, was seriously injured during a mortar attack in Iraq today. His right leg was broken in two places (not sure if he'll be able to keep it or not), abdomen and arm hit, but no serious injuries there, and shrapnel hit his head. He's out of surgery- they think it went well. His other brother, Chris, was flown in from somewhere else in Iraq to be with him in Baghdad.

Please keep Kyle, Chris, Spence, and the rest of their family in your prayers. Their mom is having a really rough time right now, and Dad's not doing much better.

Mamamontezz emailed to make sure I was aware of the situation and I posted about the subject here, then posted updates as they became available here, herehere, here and here. This afternoon I received this email from Beth:

Kyle passed away this morning. I don't know a lot of details. Spence has ok'ed (this) post. If I get any more information, I'll add it.

Go read Beth's post, then say a prayer for Kyle and his family, and for all of our Warriors.

Rest in peace, Marine. Semper Fi.

If the only reason you're here is to advertise your porn, music, or penis enhancement site you can kiss my sweet ass.


I grew up across the street from Kyle on Augustine Avenue in Elkridge, MD...but only knew him from a distance. I just got notice today (2-11-05) about him from the Elkridge paper, through a friend and it was hard to take. I remember him and his brothers running around the neighborhood and having paintball wars in the woods behind my house. I actually had a crush on him for a couple years before he moved, but never had the nerve to talk to him. Spencer, I think my sister was friends with you for a little while, her name is Kerri Ader. She sends her condolences. We wish your family the best, as well as my admiration and appreciation to a fallen soldier who is a true hero in my eyes. Crystal Ader
