    NOW, Mr President & the other Dems who were so critical of President Bush, when the heck are we getting out of that 13th century Poppy field & rock pile. Russia lost after 10 years & they did not worry about water-boarding or any other method of torture. Russia "admitted" to losing 15,000 troops, so imagine what the true number must have been, probably 40-45,000

    Semper Fi! and prayer to the family;our Marine was wounded in nov 2004 and many Marine brothers were killed. Those who sacrfice their lives will never be forgotten; that is our job to make others remember and honor their sacrifice.

    Awww, praying for his loved ones and colleagues.

    I'm a former Marine. When one goes down, it's felt Corps-wide and beyond to those who once served.

    It still makes me cry, even now 40+ years later.

    God bless.
