    Insult to Injury,2933,177706,00.html

    First things first: The issue that's getting so much attention — and rightfully so — is the hate letter written to PFC Joshua Sparling.

    In case you missed the show, Josh was wounded in Iraq on November 20, and by the time he arrived at Walter Reed Medical Center he was almost immediately carted in for surgery. With a down moment he opened up a card which — on the surface — seemed like a patriotic "get well soon" kids' note, only to open and see it said this verbatim:

    Dear, Soldier
    Have a great time into he war and have a great time dieing in the war from Solider Miguel
    P.S. DIE.

    This was the only card on his wall. As much pain as he is in he insisted on leaving the card up and in view. He, by the way, is proud of his service misses his buddies and wants to go back and fight — as did everyone I met last Friday. Please write him and his fellow wounded war fighters Christmas/holiday/get well cards to let them know that Green Day and this sadist does not represent the America public.

    Send your get-well and holiday wishes to:

    Joshua Sparling
    C/O Walter Reed Army Medical Center
    6900 Georgia Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20307-5001

    If you have the time, please try and include the others I met along with Col. North and Col. Hunt at Walter Reed:

    Capt. James Ollinger
    Sgt. Zavian Simspon
    Specialist Brian Radke
    Specialist Jason Braase
    Sgt. David Nevins
    Sgt. Jose Ramos
    Cpl. Todd Bishop
    Sgt. Ryan Donnelly
    Sgt. Eva Diane Cochran
