You are not alone, may God be with your parants. I remember when this happened. I m so sorry. My boss lost his son in an IED in 04.

This makes me mad and sad. God Bless his family. God Bless all who serve in our military. When will our politicians ever learn? They need to answer the call of our military. Politician should listen to what our military men and women have to say. A soldier, sailor and marines job is to always say YES. A politicians job is to say NO to unnecessary war and stop saying YES to the war propoganda machine and corporations that benefit from war. Our military heroes signed up to defend the Constitution of the U.S. not the will of the U.N. and Big Oil. IF there was no oil in Iraq, we wouldn't be there at all. WE all know they had nothing to do with 9-11. Saudi Arabia did.

God Bless All Who Served especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. My favorite holidays are Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day and Independence Day. God Bless America. We are one nation under God because of our troops.

I remembered hearing about his death. You'd think more would have been done to recognize him by the local veteran organizations but at least his school and clasmates cared to give him a much deserved tribute. May God Bless his family.
