We expect our soldiers to do their duty. We demand it of our fathers. Here is a man who did his utmost.
A decorated Green Beret leapt from the second-story of his burning home early Tuesday, wrapped himself in a blanket and ran back inside in an attempt to save his two young daughters.
Firefighters recovered the body of Chief Warrant Officer Edward Cantrell on the second floor of his North Carolina home, not far from the remains of 6-year-old Isabella and 4-year-old Natalia.
“He never made it back out,” said Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the Cumberland County sheriff’s office.
RIP Mr. Cantrell. We pray for the comfort of your widow. We were lucky to have you in our service. Your daughters were blessed to have you as a father.
