    I believe this was out of Iraq by the end of 2011. Either way it is a shame that I am just seeing this article online. On the television I have seen plenty of coverage of Whitney Houston. Sure she sang a lot and made millions. Apparently a troop who gave his life to give Americans their freedom means little compared to someone who can sing and do drugs. The ignorance of the media is shameful.

    Whatever happened to this war being OVER...supposedly they were all supposed to be out end of Decmber 2011. I even remember WITN running a story about the "last soldier" to be killed in the war...This is rediculous
