Holy Hell. I just saw the In Memoriam segment on This Week.
I knew eleven Americans died in Iraq last week (cast your eyes to the right) but I did not know who it was that was doing the dying.
Of eleven casualties, nine were Staff Sergeants and above. The Officer ranks were heavily represented.
These NCO’s and Officers are exactly the people we can not afford to lose and they are being thrown away in a vanity war launched by a chickenhawk who deserted his National Guard unit in a time of war.
