And when our work is done,

Our course on Earth is run,

May it be said "Well done;

Be thou at peace."

-West Point Alma Mater

Today is a day of remembrance. Let us never forget the sacrifice so many have made so that we can live free.

May God Bless the souls of Bobby Beasley and Craig Cherry. Rest in peace, buddies.

And Colin Wolfe, USMC, Manassas, VA, the only son of a business acquaintance of mine who was killed last August in Iraq. Not a career Marine, just a kid who wanted to serve his country after 9/11.

Does anyone here know who was the first American soldier killed in Iraq? He was Jose Gutierrez, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala:

I remembered a different story. The first soldiers to die in Iraq were:

(#1) Maj. Jay Thomas Aubin, 36yrs old, died Mar 20, 2003 (unit) MAWTS- 1, 3rd MAW, USMCAS Yuma, AZ CH-46E (Details)helicopter crash.

(#2) Capt. Ryan Anthony Beaupre, 30yrs old, died Mar 20, 2003 (unit) MMH Squadron - 268, 3d MAW, USMCAS Camp Pendleton, CA CH-46E (Details) helicopter crash.

(#3) Cpl. Brian Matthew Kennedy, 25yrs old, died Mar 20, 2003 (unit) MAWTS - 1, 3rd MAW, USMCAS Yuma, AZ CH-46E (details) helicopter crash.

(#4) Staff Sgt. Kendall Damon Watersbey, 29yrs old, died Mar 20, 2003 (unit) MAWTS - 1, 3rd MAW, USMCAS Yuma, AZ CH-46E (Deatils)helicopter crash

You go out of your way to undermine any efforts by US Citizens and to glorify the illegals. I'm surprised that you didn't say he was also gay as the only topics that fuel your fire are Illegals and Gays.

Sure, it is a shame he died - just like the over 3,400 other soldiers, he knew the possible consequences when he joined. Most foreigners join for a fast track to citizenship (1 year).

He should have been sent back home to begin with, instead the story proves everybody's point - He was a ward and taken care of by the STATE and COUNTY, Foster homes, Medical, Legal, Education, etc.

No Illegals are allowed to join or serve, there are very harsh penalties for joining under fraud. But bush has seen to it that the few that did it were not prosecuted as usual.

Why don't you move somewhere South of the border where someone might take you seriously. I am sure you can find some gays there also.

Thanks, HE. You've made it very clear what kind of a person you are with your own words.

Oddly enough, it turns out the first American soldier wounded in Iraq was gay. His name was Eric Alva and he lost one of his legs:

Would you like to demean his service now as well?
