It is the heartbreaking image of the undocumented victims of war. Here, Ashley Edens collapses on the coffin of her 22-year-old husband, Army Spc. Jason K. Edens, as his body arrives in Nashville, Tennessee from service in Afghanistan. More than 100 friends, relatives and Patriot Guards gathered at Smyrna Airport to welcome the fallen soldier home on Thursday after his death on April 26.

Obama and his corrupt administration have tied the hands of our glorious warriors who are giving their lives for the sake of Obamas socialist utopian dreams. The true patriotic Americans are dying while the elected powers that be sit in their ivory towers enjoying the freedoms these warriors provide.
What do we expect from a treasonous muslim kenyan who doesn’t have a patriotic bone in his corrupt body. What we are seeing is what we are getting, lies, destruction, and a progressive plague that is creeping across this country. A direct threat to our freedoms, our economy, and our lives.
I, for one intend to make the death of this glorious warrior and all the other warriors that have past before him stand for something. I intend to be a citizen warrior that will go to battle in November to depose the imposter that has not only failed as president, but one that has failed as a human being.
God bless this glorious warrior, his family and all that have gone before him.
Words do not suffice.
Very sad..when will we be done with that God forsaken country? I know there are many Afghanistan people that are blessed because of our troopers though.
Heartbreaking. Prayers for this young woman & all her family.
They are not worth our brave military lives. I’d rather them be home and protecting our border and kicking any and all out who dare to even look cross-eyed and send them back where they came from and they can blow each other up until kingdom come.
The hypocracy of code pink and the “anti-war” movement
is a stunning example of the duplicity of the left.
Prayers for his family.
Prayers for our citizen warriors.
Oh Lord, preserve our nation and protect us
from further democrat “victories”. Amen.
What a horrible waste. The best we have dying for the worst we have. Their families making such huge sacrifices while the rest are shopping at the mall or looking for new ways to scam the taxpayer. It’s enough to turn my stomach. Meanwhile our POS POTUS is in the house giving a shout out to himself.
When he's not on the golf course....
So sad for that poor girl. I pray she and the whole family will find peace and comfort through this time of great sorrow.
This was in the Nashville Tennessean yesterday. Funeral is today in Franklin....they said the idiots from Kansas are planning to be there to protest...Some of my family in Franklin are going to try to make it more difficult for them to do.
It would sure be a damn shame if any of these filthbags were to suffer a fractured skull....
My fellow Mississippians in the Brandon area gave them their money’s at a serviceman’s funeral last year. I used to grouse re: motorcycles, but now I know most of them are on the same political page that I am.
I saw the photo, when the thread was posted.
I’m glad I did not see any hateful comments.
But I had tears streaming down my face, when I logged out and had to leave.
IT TEARS YOUR HEART OUT...much like another picture found on the net of a wife lying across her husband’s grave....as well the weeping wife on the ‘Wounded Warrior’ spot on television asking requesting any support as she cares for her head injured hero’. I cant hold any of those in my head for very long....it’s just too much. I signed up for a monthly cash contribution though.
