Sad news, it's tough losing a great American. I hope the city of La Verne names a park or building or something after him so we can all remember his sacrifice for us. Usually, they name things after self-serving politicians. I thought Obama was going to end this war in 2008?

Obama is the new war. All we can do is thank the Fallen and the brave Men and Women serving and be thankful that we have young Soldiers standing up for us and fighting a war that I think is long past our original intent and the time has come to bring them home and put them first in line for loans,homes,medical and jobs and never never have hesitation in shaking the hand of our Son's and Daughters and thank them for something they can't control.
