Sgt. Huling RIP So sad you did what you were told to do, by our very corrupt Politicians in Washington D.C. If or when, a real threat come on our shores . Like an invading army backed with tanks and missile fire power Then you are the type of american we need to protect our country in such an event.. Which has never happened yet. Once again ....RIP Sgt. Huling a fine soldier And RIP to all the 58,000 American troops killed in Vietnam. who were told to attack Vietnam.. "Deja Vu"

The City of Temecula should honor local members of the armed services with banners.

We have no reason to have the large contingency of troops fighting there. US Troops should have been withdrawn long before this, continued with covert CIA operations. This is a senseless death. Pakistan is the center of terrorism and Alqaeda. They (Pakistan) support Taliban and they train Taliban; as a matter of fact they were protecting Osama. So our tax money continues to go to Pakistan as they use that tax money (our money) to kill us in Afghanistan. Another significant Obama failure which leads to American deaths on Afgan soil.
