Everyone who knew this man suffered a tremendous loss. My son served with him in Iraq and always talks about what a wonderful friend he was. She killed someone AND ran away, how this didn't deserve life is beyond me.

I agree, although 25years of looking at walls will eventually drive her crazy. Throw in the fact she will be with other criminals, means no good so perhaps she will flook up in prision and earn a longer stay is my only hopes. Atleast she will serve 85% of her time in jail. Just wish it was longer as well if not life. She doesnt deserve her freedom, that was given to her by this very soldier's life she has taken.
This is a very sad story, poor guy doesnt die from a bullet over seas, yet a car driven by a civiee.
I wish his wife ( she has the same last name i noticed as the soldier) the best of luck in the future, shes had a rough couple of years my thoughts and prayers are with her.

The wife of the soldier needs to file a civil suit to reimburse her for the loss of income, possibly the woman's home for herself or make it difficult for the woman with her finances.
