Today marks 4th anniversary of CSM Kevin Griffin's death

The late Command Sergeant Major Kevin Griffin, a Riverton native who was killed in Afghanistan in 2012 was remembered today on the CSM Kevin Griffin Memorial Page . Griffin was killed in the line of duty on August 8, 2012. A 24-year-veteran of the U.S. Army, Griffin was born and raised in Riverton and was graduated from high school here with the class of 1985. The message reads: *"Four years ago, our lives were forever changed when we received that unimaginable knock at our door. I remember it as if it were yesterday. The mere thought of it brings me to my knees as it did on August 8, 2012. I can't dwell there as the pain is too overwhelming. So as I move through this day, I will be focusing on the wonderful memories that Kevin left with us. If you have memories that you would like to share, we would love to hear them.* *My thoughts and prayers are always with the families of David Gray and Tom Kennedy - Heather Pipkin Gray , Kami Joyce Kennedy, Patricia Kennedy, George Kennedy and others.* *I celebrate the men that survived that horrific day - Florent Groberg, Brian Brink Ben Secor, Daniel Balderrama, Eric Matthew Ochart, Andrew Mahoney, Brandon Newton and others. They all have a special place in my heart. I continue to pray for them as they heal from the physical and mental wounds that were inflicted that day.* *I want to thank everyone for the continued love and support.* *I praise God for giving me the strength to continue on."* EMBED *Feature photo: h/t CSM Kevin Griffin Memorial Page / Pitchengine Communities * #county10 #news
