Hey, what did this old fool think he was doing? What a way to go, getting blown to little pieces in a far off land!
Still, that's what this country needs, senseless sacrifices to protect our freedoms and old heroes doing "great service for America."
If it wasn't for their getting themselves killed, those nasty Iraqis would be over here making us climb naked up on each other and frightening us with big dogs.
In a way, it's better these old tossers getting blown up rather than ignorant young kids who think the Iraqis blew up the Twin Towers.

I would like to add my thanks and condolences too. I hope that his sacrifice can help make the world a better place. There are many thoughtless remarks made on this site when people try to commiserate with those who grieve. It doesn’t take much thought really to see what a serious loss it would be if people did not serve in the armed forces for us. Ssgt Towns’ rank suggests that he generally commanded far more respect than his critics could.
