    As a military wpouse it always hurts to hear of one of our own who passes away. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of both of these marines! God bless!

    I sat down to watch the 11 o'clock news last night and was APPALLED that they ran a bit on the men coming home before they ran the announcement that these two men had died. As a military wife I am insulted. Naturally, I am happy that most of our men returning home. However, I think that the men who die over there serving our country deserve a little more respect.
