    With their BOOOOSH Boogeyman gone, it's obviously no longer fashionably convenient for the MSM to report on our Soldiers' deaths. But they are still dying every day. A U.S. Soldier has been killed every day this month so far.


    So far in April, nine American service members have made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan.

    The Unknown Soldiers:

    Staff Sgt. Tyler Smith, 24, Licking, Missouri
    Staff Sgt. Christopher Brown, 26, Columbus, Ohio
    Capt. Nicholas Rozanski, 36, Dublin, Ohio
    Sgt. 1st Class Jeffrey Rieck, 45, Columbus, Ohio
    Sgt. 1st Class Shawn Hannon, 44, Grove City, Ohio
    Spc. Jeffrey White Jr., 21, Catawissa, Missouri
    Cpl. Alex Martinez, 21, Elgin, Illinois
    Spc. Antonio Burnside, 31, Great Falls, Montana

    The ninth warrior, Cpl. Christopher Bordoni, 21, died in the hospital after being wounded in the same Jan. 18 terrorist attack that killed Cpl. Philip McGeath, who was remembered on this blog last month. Cpl. Bordoni, a brave Marine from Ithaca, New York, tragically succumbed to his injuries on Apr. 3.

    With our nation still at war, let us make another solemn pledge. We will never forget all the valiant men and women who gave their last measure of devotion to the cause of freedom. As their families experience unimaginable pain and grief, let us also pray that they find some measure of comfort.

    Our Father who art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy name.
    Thy kingdom come.
    Thy will be done
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us,
    and lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.

    The Media has forgotten, but that doesn't mean we have to.

    Most of us will never forget....
    This is pretty sad, when Bush was in office you'd hear about this just about every day. More than likely Obama ordered them not to publish this information, it'll just look bad on him!
    I can't imagine the pain these families are going through...i know i worried constantly the 3 times my son was deployed to Iraq. Thank God he hasn't had to go to Afghanistan...yet.

    Thank you for this post... :)

    You're welcome Caroljo. And yeah, the MSM has no shame at this point. It just isn't fashionably convenient for them to report our kids' deaths anymore. Their BOOOOSH Boogeyman is gone. And that's what it was always really about for them. It's very sad.

    Now the Taliban can go about in the night unmolested, what the fuck kind of war is this? did we not conduct operations in Korea or Vietnam at night? :cuckoo: what a bunch of pussies we are, this is big confidence booster for the Talibs you can bet that.
