EL PASO- Fort Bliss released today the identities of the three men killed in East Afghanistan on December 3rd.

Sgt. 1st Class Clark A. Corley Jr., 35 of Oxnard California, Spc. Ryan M. Lunley, 21 of Lakeland, Florida and Spc. Thomas J. Mayberry, 21, of Springville, California died after their unit was attacked by enemy forces with an explosive device. They were all  part of Operation Enduring Freedom. Each of the three men were married and one had a child.

A Fort Bliss restaurant favorite down the street, El Zarape, heard the unfortunate news. A waitress, Victoria Martinez said, "It saddens me that just to know that we're in the holidays where everybody is united with their family and knowing that people are dying for our country."

She says that Fort Bliss soldiers are regulars at the restaurant and a major part of the El Paso Community.

A memorial service date has not yet been released.

Many people recognized Jesus after His resurrection (John 20:16, 20; 21:12; 1 Corinthians 15:4-7). If Jesus was recognizable in His glorified body, we also will be recognizable in our glorified bodies. Being able to see our loved ones is a glorious aspect of heaven, but heaven is far more about God, and far less about us. What a pleasure it will be to be reunited with our loved ones and worship God with them for all eternity.

The Bible declares that when we arrive in heaven, we will “be like him [Jesus]; for we shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:2). Just as our earthly bodies were of the first man Adam, so will our resurrection bodies be just like Christ’s (1 Corinthians 15:47). “And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:49, 53).

Correction-2 of them had children.
