Andrew Olmsted — Major, US Army, blogger, and writer for the Rocky Mountain News – was killed Yesterday in Diyala Province, Iraq.

Hilzoy @Obsidian Wings has published Olmsted's final post to be published in the event of his death. This is a request from the post:
"So if you're up for that, put on a little 80s music (preferably vintage 1980-1984), grab a Coke and have a drink with me. If you have it, throw 'Freedom Isn't Free' from the Team America soundtrack in; if you can't laugh at that song, I think you need to lighten up a little. I'm dead, but if you're reading this, you're not, so take a moment to enjoy that happy fact."
