The sun shines through a stained glass window that was recently installed in memory of 2nd Lt. Matthew Blount at the First Baptist Church in Pelham, Ala. Blount was commissioned on March 7 and passed away on March 10 due to leukemia and cancer. According to all who knew him, the Praying Soldier design embodied the spirit of the young officer from his youth through his Army career as a combat medic as well as a member of his family, his church and community. The window was put in during a small ceremony on December 15.
