Hate to hear that. Those men and women have more heart, balls and integrity that any of the inbred politicians in Washington. My condolences.

Terribly sorry to hear that, you have my deepest condolences. Two of my very good friends, Brian and Sam, are over there. This is Sam's fourth time going. I try not to think about it but I hear things like this I can't help thinking that the clocks ticking. It scares the hell out of me.

I hope their wounds heal well. Please tell them that their sacrifice is not underminded or in vain. We owe him and all our soldiers, our freedom.

I'll be praying for the family. Please let them know that others are thinking of them and appreciate the sacrifice that was made for freedom.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Old Dog - sorry for your neighbor's loss. As Admiral Chester Nimitz said after the battle of Iwo Jima "uncommon valor was a common virtue." Ditto for the Marines and other armed service personnel around the world today.

I stand behind you only because I'm too old to stand beside you.
