A friend of mine passed away this week . . .

Maj. Scott A. Hagerty of Stillwater died Tuesday when a roadside bomb exploded next to his vehicle in Zormat, Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

Hagerty was assigned to the 451st Civil Affairs Battalion. Pfc. Derek D. Holland, 20, of Wind Gap, Pa., who was assigned to the 228th Brigade Support Battalion, Pennsylvania Army National Guard, also was killed in the explosion.

Hagerty is survived by his wife, Daphne, their sons, Jonathan and Samuel, and his parents, Don and Shirley, all of Stillwater. In a statement issued by the Army, Hagerty’s family thanked friends and fellow soldiers.

“The Hagerty family is sincerely touched by the concern and interest all have taken in Scott’s life,” the statement said. “Scott was very proud of his career in the Army, and we know he died doing what he loved — serving his country. When called up for duty, he went willingly and proudly as a duty-bound soldier does.”

Hagerty was born Sept. 1, 1966, in Muskogee, He had lived in Stillwater since 1976 when his family moved to Oklahoma. He graduated from Stillwater High School in 1984 and joined the Army in 1986.

His first deployment was to Iraq from October 2004 to August 2005.

Hagerty earned a bachelor’s degree in 1993 in political science, pre-law and international relations from Oklahoma State University.

According to a Department of Defense release, Hagerty also had been employed by National Standard as a 29-line operator and a manager.

During his two active-duty enlistments, Hagerty served a 12-month tour in Korea, the DoD release said. During his Army Reserve career, Hagerty was commissioned a field artillery officer and served in this branch for 11 years within the 291st Regiment (Training Support) in Oklahoma until he transferred to the U.S. Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (Airborne) in 2004.

He deployed to Afghanistan shortly after being assigned to the 451st Civil Affairs Battalion in February. Prior to that, he had been in Uganda, where his mission was to prevent conflict and promote regional stability.

“I have always dreamed about being a soldier, even as a little boy, so I know I am doing the job that was destined for me,” he told the NewsPress via e-mail for a story published in April 2007.

His military awards included two Meritorious Service Medals, Joint Service Commendation Medal, two Army Commendation Medals, six Army Achievement Medals, Good Conduct Medal, three Army Reserve Components Achievement Medals, two National Defense Service Medals, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary and Service Medals, Korean Defense Service Medal, Armed Forces Reserve Medal with “M” (mobilization) device and numeral “2,” the Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Combat Action Badge, Driver and Mechanic Badge with Driver-Tracked Vehicle Bar and the Marksmanship Qualification Badge.

RIP, Brother.

very sorry to hear, this is a loss for our country. thank you for your service Maj. Scott A. Hagerty
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

I read about pfc. Holland in the local paper here. The whole community has had a tremendous outpouring of support for his family.

God bless those who serve and their families during these times.

It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.
