1. Heroes who died in the service of their country ...
...on the orders of the commander-in-chief, an unelected, unqualified, incompetent, murdering, treasonous madman.

Someone close by where I live lost a son, father and husband in this illegal and immoral war:



Justin Peterson: Followed grandfather's example to become a gung-ho Marine

October 8, 2006
BY JOE ROSSITER
FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

Ever since he was a youngster, Justin Peterson dreamed of becoming a Marine and following in the footsteps of his grandfather, a retired career officer in the Marine Corps for 20 years.

"The idea of being a gung-ho Marine always appealed to him," said his mother, Ginna Peterson.

Capt. Peterson, 32, the father of three and a resident of Davisburg, died Oct. 1 from a nonhostile vehicle accident in Anbar province in Iraq.

The Department of Defense said the incident was under investigation. He was assigned to the 1st Tank Battalion, 1st Marine Division 1 Marine Expeditionary Force in Twentynine Palms, Calif.

He is the 102nd soldier with ties to Michigan to die in Iraq.

After graduating from Southfield Christian High School in 1992, he joined the Marine Reserves where he fulfilled his boot camp and combat training duties. While attending Taylor University, in Upland, Ind., he completed his weekend and summertime duty and was selected for Officer's Candidate School.

Once he earned his bachelor's degree in business in 1997, he was awarded a lieutenant's commission. During his military career he was stationed in North Carolina, Michigan, Virginia and California, before being sent to Iraq in April. He married Patricia Goss in 2002.

In addition to his mother and his wife, survivors include two sons, Jared and Jayden; a daughter, Caitlin; his father, Dale; two brothers, Jordan and Joshua; two sisters, Charity and Joy, and his grandparents, Don and Libby Woodworth.

2. thank you for personalizing this
each one of these people is someone's son. Their death may not be as sexy as a good sex scandal, but very important to note.
