    Ya, I knew two people that have been killed in Iraq..

    Lance Cpl. Benjamin (Ben) Carman KIA 04/06/04 of Jefferson, IA. His grandfather was a POW during World War II His family (I think it was) set up a website for family and friends... Camp Pendleton

    Sgt. Daniel (Dan) Sesker KIA 04/06/06 of Ogden, IA. Unfortunately I didn't know him all that well (knew him for about 2 months).

    I remember reading about the funeral in Ogden because those Westboro idiots showed up. Pretty sure that was Daniel Sesker's funeral. Something needs to be done with that cult of Godless bastards.

    In Kansas, the Patriot Guard Riders were formed to block the mourners view from the protesters of the Westboro Baptist church.
