    Can someone explain to me why we have lost another solider? Pull these people out of there. We are only losing our people. Who cares what happens to the Iraq's. I say drop a bomb on the entire place and flaten it and be done with it.I don't even know why they got our soliders over there. It's crazy.

    Every time I hear of one of our brave men and women who gave their life defending our country I always shed tears. My thoughts and prayers go to the family this wonderful person left behind. There are no comforting words that can be said to ease your pain, only prayers that God will see you through this. No one knows the sorrow unless they have experienced it. God Bless the family and nothing can ever be said enough for this soldier for the courage she showed. America owes so much to our military men and women.
