    Condolences to his family. I have a son in the Navy and it is not easy for the family. I pray that you receive comfort in the knowledge that we ARE a thankful nation. And You are right bombayrunner. Marines and Marines, but we are all one in the same under that flag. Thank you to all who serve.

    Time to bring our troops home from Afg. There's no way to win a war where the ally and the enemy look the same, and often change sides as soon as the sun goes down which makes it too much like Vietnam - we'll never win and are just presenting meat for the fruitless war machine there, and that's wrong!!! BRING THEM HOME!!!
