Family Mourns Death Of Ft. Campbell Soldier

A deadly week for Ft. Campbell soldiers serving in Iraq. Army officials say Sgt. Eric Hernandez, Capt. Adam Snyder, and Private DeWayne White were killed in a roadside bombing.

While Capt. Adam Snyder is from Florida, some of his family members live in the Bluegrass.
Now instead of waiting for Adam's next email from Iraq, the Burchfields will head south from Lexington to attend their loved one's funeral.

Capt. Snyder graduated from Westpoint in 2005 and almost immediately he was deployed to Iraq. He was serving his second tour of duty, but his family tells us he never complained about putting his life at risk everyday. They say Adam just wanted to make life better for the Iraqi people. Capt. Synder will be buried with full military honors in his home state of Florida.

All flags in Kentucky are to remain at half staff in honor of the three Ft. Campbell soldiers The 101st airborne division has lost 172 soldiers since the Iraq war began in 2003.

    They have sowed the wind and now they reap the whirlwind. More and worse is coming as the bodies stack up like cords of wood. If you don't want your sons and daughters to die, then the thing to do is bring them home and leave those people alone. Duh!
