Carolea Hassard couldn't have written a better epitaph for a fine soldier, but do you really think that the father's last comment needed to be included? Com'on. We all know what an IED does to a person, so we surely didn't need the father's comment of, "blown to bits" included. What would have been a beautiful tribute to a one of America's finest was a jaw dropper when I read the last paragraph. There are just no words to describe it. Horrible journalism.

It may be horrible, but it is accurate. I know it is ugly...blame the people responsible for this insanity. Blame the ones who sent him there.
