I come from a long line of Ameicans. My family has had losses in every war from the Revolutionary through World War 2. We know the history of each deceased realitive who gave their lives so we can have liberty.

The tragedy of Ben Gazzi was just too much for us to believe. The USAlost 4 of their bravest sons there. The reason, I call it such is that the current government would send NO ONE to aid them. It's as if, we are in a BAD DREAM. I couldn't write about it, at first, is due that I was and still am distraught about this waste of BRAVE men.

The administration "claims" they are investigating this! Give me a break!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You aren't alone. To be doing service for your country and they be ignored when you ask for help is unthinkable. And yet, it happened. Can't even imagine what those men felt like when know one came to help.

    The entire thing brings me to my knees in prayer. I am deeply saddened at the thought that NOTHING was done.

    It's a dangerous area in the world full of unrest. Fanatics are everywhere and Americans are at risk all over the world.

    The Benghazi tragedy is nothing short of shameful. That's all I can say about it.

My son was in Afghanistan exactly 3 days when he lost comrades . . . THREE DAYS. On day #6 he himself was severely wounded (shot and shrapnel wounds from a grenade that exploded when he was down). He was stable enough to transfer back to his base in Alaska, wehre he's been since august 20th.

I thank God everyday that there are men and women brave enough to put their lives on the line for us.

It really breaks my heart that so many beautiful men and women give their lives for our freedoms and I pray their is an appreciation for what we have and support for those who fight for it.

Thank you for this blog. I just wanted to let you know you're not alone in your feelings.
