Carolyn Berry Copp of Craigie Circle writes, "My stepson Jonathan Copp [who writes under the name of Jonathan Evans] grew up in Concord and Carlisle and graduated from CCHS in 1996. He is in the Army now and stationed outside of Washington D.C. Jon is a passionate and articulate guy who, in addition to flying helicopters, is quite a writer. Through the aligning stars (which always happens for Jon) he met an editor of the magazine US News and World Report and pitched him an article that he had written about his experience flying the honor guard to Dover Air Force Base to greet soldiers who were killed. This is a story that the press can't cover due to Army regulations.

Jonathan's article "Honoring the Fallen, Quietly" has just been published in this week's edition of US News and World Report [ 2/2/04 ] and is also available on line,
