    Jake Carroll was someone's son, brother, grandson, nephew, friend, and fellow soldier. He will be missed dearly by so many people, especially by all of us; his loving and heartbroken family. Jake will always be in our hearts, memories, and thoughts. We will never forget you and and ultimate sacrifice you made.

    Ms Manda.....To bad the Commander-in Chief, after his initial photo op is never at Dover AFB to be with the returning heroes or to console their families. Or at least send his foot 'n mouth assistant Biden.

    I am an INDEPENDENT, so I have no political axe with the Dems or Czar Obama.
    Lets get our children out of that rock pile! We are no safer because they have sacrificed there lives and bodies in this senseless war

    War is only justified when a Democrat is sitting in the Oval office.

    Didn't you know that?

    RIP young heroes.
    When will the Czar bring our young people home from this senseless Wat. Is he still blaming GWB on this one?

    Does anyone really feel safer, because these young people are dying in this 13th century poppy growing, rock pile? Not to mention those who are getting lifetime wounds.
    Not to mention the huge cost?

    Where are the Hollywood, liberal media, etc, Bush bashers now?

    I noticed over the past couple of months, no more total body counts on this site. Is it not proved, or is it left out?

    I guess this news report will be dropped by NOON
