Expatriate,

My heart goes out to you and your family. I can't imagine having to go through this. Pleae accept my deepest condolences.

From one vet to another.

It is the VETERAN , not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN , not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN , not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN , not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN , not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN , not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN ,
who salutes the Flag,

It is the veteran,
who serves under the Flag, !

ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.

VETERANS KNOW THAT THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE.

Before we hit the road, here's a news article Hampton Roads Daily Press just wrote about Shawn. I was surprised that they tracked us down, and pleased to discover that not all journalists are communists. Big smile I've kept my name out of this forum for over four years because of what I do and some of the political discussions, but it's a good article and does him justice.

Thanks again, everybody.

What do I say? Difficult topic, just know that your son was a hero, a warrior, and a brave American who proudly stood up for what is right. I know you are proud of him and also know our troops are our pride and joy!

I don't usually check out this forum, so I just read about your loss.

My deepest sympathies are with you and your family. May God bless you all at this time of sorrow.

Sincerely,
Dave
