We've Lost Another Hero...

Services for Army Pfc. Alberto Garcia Jr., 23, of Bakersfield,
are pending.
Garcia died Tuesday, 3/13/07, in Baghdad of wounds suffered from small-arms fire and an improvised bomb. His family lives in Bakersfield.
My prayers go out to the family of this brave young man.
Twelve Kern County servicemen have died in the line of duty since the Sept. 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks.

I salute this young man who gave his life for his country. May his family be comforted knowing that he gave the last full measure that a man can give and that he is now with the other heroes who have gone before him.

Thank you for recognizing his sacrifice.

Seeing these day after day is heartbreaking and infuriating at the same time. I get the DoD press releases as they are issued and I see way too many of our troops making the ultimate sacrifice. Any time we can stop and show our appreciation or extend a kind word or gesture to the families they've left behind, we should.

These brave men and women are dying for our country, and our media is fixated on Anna Nicole and the "feud" between Donald Trump and Rosie. What a world!
