His friends got an e-mail from him last November in which he politely informed them that (a) he was dead, and (b) they were invited to an all-expenses-paid party in Sin City to commemorate him.
This past Saturday, they had the party. Awesome.
His e-mail also included this bit, presumably to nip any nascent Sheehanism in the bud:
“Don’t ever think that you are defending me by slamming the Global War on Terrorism or the U.S. goals in that war,” Jeffrey Toczylowski wrote. “As far as I am concerned, we can send guys like me to go after them or we can wait for them to come back to us again. I died doing something I believed in and have no regrets except that I couldn’t do more.”
His friends have set up a tribute website. Check out “Party Toz,” at least.
Captain Jeffrey Toczylowski, 30 years old. RIP.
