Stupid article. They're not being "Quietly Mourned". They're just not making a public spectacle out of it since some people choose to use a situation like that to push their own anti-military agendas. I'm sure they'll pop up on here in a few minutes.

RIP soldiers, and may your families find happiness again in the future.

I am an army wife mid way during the third deployment of my spouse and i would never say that I don't get emotional over each and every death, wound and hurt that our service members suffer. I have not seen less support from our community, in fact, I see groups actively gathering supplies to send to the soldiers from that unit still in theatre to show their support and that they care for them. I hear a community asking how they can help the families that have lost soldiers and helping when they can. I do agree that I sit and wait with mixed feelings about Obama's decision and my soldiers being in harms way while he does it.
