    knight874....I commend your wife and thank yer with all of my heart for service to our country. Any idea where you want me to move.
    Tell me why you find this "war" making sense and why we are sacrificing our young people. By the way for your info, I was at 9-11. Lived it for many months and still have nighmares over it. What has 9-11 got to do with our young heroes dying in this senseless "war". Do not attempt to get in my head about who her boss is. I put my time in and know the chain of command. Because he is the boss, it does not mean that he is right. Do not forget, his political campaign. Get out of Iraq, get out of Afghanistan, close GITMO. I think it is you who has no idea what you are writing about. next response tell me what we gain by losing our young brave heroes. My daughters neighbor, Todd Beamer gave the order "lets roll" over Shankeville Pa. Those of us from up-north lived that day for not a few moments but we STILL do! don't preach to me!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't know if you have a family member in the military or not, I DO and that person is my wife....their boss is the President of the United States....soldiers follow orders and they sign up for dangerous work. We all enjoy freedoms due to our military and their brave actions. If you don't like it here then move. I find this war far from senseless...I lost an uncle in 9/11 and I remember the day like it was yesterday...senseless war...you don't have any idea what you are talking about.

    As the parent of a soldier, I can promise you that Cpl. Muller VOLUNTEERED to give his life for the freedom his friends, familiy and the rest of us are enjoying. This, to him, was far from senseless. It's insulting to say that a soldier makes the ultimate sacrifice for nothing. He didn't do so because someone told him to or made him. He asked for it.....THAT makes him brave, THAT makes him our hero! Rest in peace, CPL, and THANK YOU!
