    My husband fought with SPC Freeman in Iraq from 2007 – 2008, The news of his death is devastating. I have spent the past three days gladly listening to my husband’s very fond memories of SPC Freeman. Everyone who knew him has great respect for him. May he rest in peace and may his family, friends, and fellow soldiers be blessed.
