Yet another life is sacrificed for Bush and Cheney's immoral and senseless war. Both war criminals will rot in Hell for eternity -- the sooner the better.

Sir, I believe you will be the one "rotting in hell". This person chose to be in the military and defend our country. In the wake of his death all you can do is bitch about a war you don't support instead of showing a little respect for what Mr. Green thought was an honorable way to live his life. No matter your opinion on the war, perhaps try showing a little compassion.

How do you know he approved of the war and saw it as an honorable way to live? A soldier cannot question, just follow orders, so we don't know how he felt really about this. Tell me how many of them want to be out there getting shot at or blown up? My heart goes out to his family, but it is a tragedy that a young life is cut short by a few stupid mens' greed and lies.

Exactly. Thank you for making the point.

I mourn the loss of every American's life lost in this senseless war -- more so than anyone will ever know. Those of us with a loved one whose life was taken or suffered serious injuries in a war suffer more than anyone. To randomly assume that I or anyone opposed to the war in Iraq does not honor our fallen heroes is incredibly stupid.

Opinions vary, and everyone has one. It sometimes gets taken to heart when a person bad mouths the war. Most Military members believe in whats going on over there because we have lived it, some later change opinion. Please just remember it is very easy to offend a Soldier or likewise when they have been there. Prayers to the Soldiers family...walk easy troop.

This posting is so inappropriate. Respect the family and keep your political rantings to yourself. Have you no shame?

Let us hope that his ex-wife will now find a decent, moral man to take care of her and those very young kids.
People make mistakes and marrying that piece of murdering filth was a bad choice.
Now, the future is brighter and more hopeful and the children might even discover the benefits of having a father who prefers spending time with them to murdering innocents.

If you have never served in the military and don't know the honor and country creed, Keep you comments to yourself, and if you are from a liberal cry baby state/country, keep your blogs off the net. All of you make me sick, an AMERICAN SOLDIER (Chaplins Assistant), who's responsiblity is to assist and protect a man of the cloth was killed by people who would rather spit on everyone of you than say hello. and you critize his sacrifce and now his wifes choices. shame to all who don't just say thanks for you sacrifice and all the best to his faimly. Rangers lead the way.

This young soldier did not die in combat. His death is still under investigation and we shouldn't jump to conclusions. Let's wait to see what he died from before we jump into another diatribe about how and why he died. The point is he lost his life. We need to focus on the loss of a human life instead of how we can best feed our own egos with yet more rhetoric.. maybe we can offer some comfort to his family and friends via our condolences.
I'm not a saint but I try to stop for a brief moment when I encounter a person in the service of our country and say a simple thank you. They are going through things we can barely emagin if we haven't been there. I inquire of each one I meet as to wheather or not their journey was or is worth it. I have yet to hear the answer no. How about a prayer to God that He bless and protect them and a profound word of Thanks to Him and to them?
