It is with great sadness that I post the news I got today at work regarding my fishing brother/Good Friend/Firefighter.

Kramer was Killed in action in Iraq 6/29/30

He was known here on Pier and Surf as well as other boards as EDWKRM.
PIctures; Kramer Then Jose and Kramer at the point.

Sorry to hear that I lost 2 buddies while we were in Iraq. I cant think of a more honorable way to go then to lay down your life for your country. Its because of him and all the other men and women that have laid down there lives that we have the freedoms we do. I am great full to him and everyone else that has served their country and paid the ultimate price.

For some it's hard to relate...

But I do---I lost two friends in the Viet Nam era. It's tough when you think that there is everything to look forward to and then they're gone at such a young age. Now that I'm retired, I live life to the fullest because you never know.

Well, any death in a combat zone is terrible, but when it's this close to home, it really hits hard! My thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to the family. I sure as hell wish he could still be here with us, and out on the beach fishing! DAMN...this SUCKS!

If there is a Buxton or Ft Fisher in Heaven....Kramer is there right now.... Rest In Peace. Met him a handful of times and heard about all the great stories from Ryan...

Wow..I'm still choked up.

Ryan, did the rod ever get done?

Nope, I never started on his new rods. I got the blanks at the house. I kind of knew the colors he liked; the ones on the 1502 he got from you. But I was holding off until he came back as he expressed intrest in wanting to learn how to build and help build his new ones too.
