Jet Crash, Bin Laden’s Son, and Conaway Retiring from Congress

US Navy Jet Crash

A US Navy jet crashed near the Naval Air Weapons Station in California on July 31st. Seven people were injured and, thankfully, no civilian deaths were reported. Unfortunately, Lt. Charles Z. Walker piloting the aircraft was killed in the crash at age 33.

Our prayers go out to the servicemen and women involved in this accident.

Osama bin Laden’s Son Believed to Be Dead

Hamza bin Laden may be dead according to new reports. A US official said that America played a role in his death, but support for this claim has not been provided. Earlier this year the State Department said the younger bin Laden was groomed by his father to become the new leader of al Qaeda. One million dollars was offered for information that would lead to his capture.

Both the Department of Defense and President Trump have declined to comment on this matter.

Rep. Mike Conaway Retiring from Congress

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) announced that he won’t seek reelection in 2020. He’s the fifth GOP lawmaker to announce their retirement in the past two weeks. Conaway’s 15 years of diligent service to Congress have earned him a very favorable reputation among his Republican colleagues and constituents alike.

In his press release, Conaway said,

While serving in Congress, I have asked Suzanne and our family to make innumerable sacrifices. She and they have willingly made those necessary sacrifices, but they were still sacrifices. The time has come for me to put Suzanne, my children, and my grandchildren first.

Hopefully, Conaway finds an equal amount of fulfillment in his next career.
