Killed in Iraq
I found out last Friday that a guy I went to high school with was just killed in Iraq, In a town of about 5000, the whole town is just still, this weekend was the biggest celebration the town has and it was just quiet compared to other years, No one from town hardly went, The whole thing has just got everyone in the town thinking about it. I was not close friends with him, but I was on the golf team with him for a couple years and always saw him in the hall. Please pray for him and his family.

This is where it hits hard - at home and the family and friends. Seen this for myself. It's never just (another) life lost - it is a family in grief, their lives irrevocably changed.
I pray they find the strength to cope with it and be able to move on ..... and my heart sinks every day as I read of our boys being lost - every time somewhere there is hurt and pain.

Everyone severing in the military is a hero if they are in Afganistan or Iraq or just serving on a base or ship here in the states.
Your friend died trying to stop the terrorists from attacking us here. He is the very definition of a hero.
God bless him and his family and friends.

We stand on the shoulders of giants. He is now among them.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

His family and friends are in my prayers...along with those currently serving.

This is indeed the saddest part of our freedom. It is never, and has never been free. May God comfort his family and friends.

Just found out that there is word that some group is protesting at the funeral, but that group of bikers are supposed to be coming as well to block them off. I still can't imagine what they are thinking protesting.

I can think of nothing more wrong than those people protesting that soldier's funeral. My prayers are with him and his family.
I have really dark thoughts about those protesters. I'm glad those bikers will be there to block them. If it were my family they were protesting, I'd probably end up in jail.

To those that paid for my freedom,
I WILL NEVER FORGET.
As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

That would be Fred Phelps and his gang of idiots from Topeka , Kansas. Bunch of nutbags, really. Phelps says God hates gays and since the army has gays in it, then it is his job to protest as many of the burials as possible. The bikers are a great group of people that go to all the funeral services to act as a shield between the nutbags and the family honoring the soldier. I didn't know these scums were going out of state with their protests. They have been around the Ft. Riley/Junction City area many times, we have always have quite a few bikers and others to counter act these whack jobs. First amendment, you know. This is one time I would like to violate the promise I made 5 times to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foriegn and DOMESTIC. God, I really despise those that protest at a soldiers funeral.

I feel for his family. Being former military myself, I have seen the faces of the children who will never see mom or dad again. War is an ugly thing.
God Bless America!!
