    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.

    Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. ~ John 15:13:sadangel:

    What an example of sacrifice, how sad that he didnt make it out, but at least he passed with his two beloved daughters.

    RIP Hero, thought and prayers with the family.
