A friend posted a pic online for the simple reason there was a rucksack sitting next to the wreck at the side of Hwy 17 which made our hearts sink. The number of soldiers and others killed on this highway over the years for the simple reason it is not dual laned is criminal. RIP Jason.

Sad news....so young.  RIP Pte Jason Rickard.  :cdn:
Condolences to the family, friends and co-workers.  :yellow:
I would think the 65 year old man driving the truck he collided head on into is going through a rough period right now too, through ono fault of his own.
My condolences to Adele & her family. Words are not enough to express my sympathy. RIP Soldior  :salute:  :cdn:
