Today is a sad day for Carol Stream residents and students and staff of Bartlett High School.
An announcement was made at school today that Lenny (Leonard) Gulczynski was killed in the line of duty in Iraq. Lenny is a 2007 Graduate of Bartlett High School and joined the Army at 17. He followed in the footsteps of his father and others in his family fighting for our Country.
Bartlett High School will have their flag at half-mast in honor of this fallen soldier Friday September 19, 2007. They will also have a photo and wreath at the flagpole for any community members who would like to pay their respects, or leave memorials in honor of Lenny and his bravery.
I did not know Lenny well however, I remember when he played football with my son. Thank you Lenny for your service and fighting for our Country and our Freedom!
Thank you to everyone who has read this post and offered their condolences and prayers for Lenny and his family. I have not heard any details of a service yet. I will post when I learn more. I am looking for anyone from the Patriot Guards and will also recruit Rescue Riders to ride with Lenny in honor of his service. Please contact me to arrange the details.
