Today, Sept 3, 2007, SSgt Charles \"Mike\" (Shorty) Long passed away in a Florida hospital. Friday, Shorty got into a motorcycle accident. He lost control of his bike and struck a telephone phone. He was rushed to a near-by hospital. He was in a coma and bleeding in his brain. I got word he passed away today as a result of his injuries.
SSgt Long leaves behind his girlfriend and their unborn son. He was stationed at Moody AFB, GA as a member of the elite 823d Security Forces Squadron. He was a veteren of both Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
He was a good cop, great K9 handler, a better trainer, and you couldn't ask for a more loyal friend. I am glad I could call him mine.

I would like to pass on my best wishes and condolances to Master Justice and the families of both of his much loved freinds... May the Force Be With You All in this darkest of times.

Into your will, O Force,
we humbly entrust this brother.
In this life you embraced him with your power;
deliver him now from every evil
and bid him enter eternal rest,
Once more part of the Force.

The old order has passed away:
welcome him then into paradise,
where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain,
but the fullness of peace and joy
for ever and ever.

While I am sorry for the loss of your friend, I am sorry for his girlfriend and his unborn child, May The Force be with them in their times of need and know that life does not end here, he will be apart of the greater force that surrounds them and be ever present through their child.
