Another Lake City, TN soldier killed overseas
Local media is reporting the death of soldier Jason Hovater, who was serving in Afghanistan, over the weekend. He was reportedly originally from Lake City, TN, my hometown. I didn't know Jason and I don't know his family but my heart goes out to them and I hope you'll join me in praying for his family, including his parents and young bride.
Here's some links to the breaking news stories on Jason Hovater:
