Alva "Al" Gaylord

I apologize for the lapse, just found out that a family member's brother in law was killed in Iraq on May 5th.

Alva "Al" Gaylord belonged to the 110th Engineer Battalion, Missouri Army National Guard. He died of injuries sustained when a roadside bomb detonated near his RG-31 Mine Protected Vehicle during a combat clearing operation in Qasr Ar Riyy, Iraq. He was 25 years old and from Carrollton, Missouri.

For those of you in the area I will post visitation and funeral information as soon as I receive details.

Please keep his family and friends in your prayers.
Alva "Al" Gaylord

If anyone would like to send a card to Alva's family, they can send them through me and I will get the cards to his sister, she is married to my husband's cousin.
