Bring the Troops Home!

We can’t have them dying in war anymore!!!

Bring them home so that they can be safe and spend time with their loved ones!

Home From Iraq, Wary Marine Fatally Wounded

On leave from the violence he had survived in the war in Iraq, a young Marine was so wary of crime on the streets of his own home town that he carried only $8 to avoid becoming a robbery target.

Despite his caution, Lance Cpl. Robert Crutchfield, 21, was shot point-black in the neck during a robbery at a bus stop. Feeding and breathing tubes kept him alive 4 1/2 months, until he died of an infection on May 18.

Crutchfield was attacked on Jan. 5 while he and his girlfriend were waiting for a bus. He had heeded the warnings of commanders that a Marine on leave might be seen as a prime robbery target with a pocketful of money, so he only carried $8, his military ID card and a bank card.

“They took it, turned his pockets inside out, took what he had and told him since he was a Marine and didn’t have any money he didn’t deserve to live. They put the gun to his neck and shot him,” Holt told The Associated Press.

Bedford High teachers recalled Crutchfield’s smile, his pride in his appearance, his determination to join the Marine Corps after graduation in 2005 and his aspiration to become an architect.

“He was friendly and kind and willing to help out in any way that he could,” counselor Yvonne Sims said in an e-mail.

Sure, we could bring them home, but to what? Look at all the crime and violence. And the lack of respect for veterans. I refuse to give the killers more fame by mentioning their names but I will say that they were 19 and 20 years old. Fresh out of school, assuming they finished, and no respect for others. Our wonderful liberal school system has been successful in creating more anti-military killers.  You should be so proud!

If the left really supported the troops, wouldn’t these killers have had more respect and spared this honorable man his life?

Why does it sound like our own streets are more dangerous than a war zone?

    I felt like assuming. They could be renegade baptist preachers for all I know. Damn Christians! 😛

    Most educational systems lean to the left so it’s a fair assumption. And since the ‘hand that rocks the cradle’ is leftist and yet garbage is still coming out of the schools…. put the dots together. If you need more, then look at all the changes the past decade or so. Prayer is out, pledge of allegiance is out, aclu is in, can’t use red-ink because it’ll scar them, let’s not keep track of the score in games because it may hurt their feelings…. it just doesn’t end!

    My daughter started going to a Catholic School and we’ve noticed a huge difference in her. Yes, an improvement. She wasn’t motivated in regular school. Go figure.

    And thanks for stopping by! I did stop by your blog, but you haven’t posted much lately.
