  • When Soldiers Get Killed and Wounded in Combat Do Not Get Their Purple Hearts

    03/14/2006 10:18:35 PM PST · by kokonut · 5 replies · 275+ views
    It has come to my attention, quite shockingly, that the Pentagon has not yet given out Purple Hearts to the soldiers killed and wounded in the grenade and rifle attack at Camp Pennsylvania in Kuwait a few days before the start of the Iraq war on March 23, 2003. It has been three since the attack and family and service members are wondering why the Pentagon’s refusal to give out Purple Hearts? One of them was my cousin, Major Gregory Stone, who was mortally wounded from the grenades that were tossed in his tent while he slept. The Purple Heart,...

    Dear President Crow and Director Sideman: I was appalled to read about the 200 posters Arizona State University professor John Jota Leanos created and displayed on buildings in downtown Phoenix recently in order to promote his radical anti-war agenda: His poster contained the likeness of Pat Tillman, who was killed serving our country in Afghanistan, and was emblazoned with the text, ''Flawed perceptions of myself, my country and the War on Terror resulted in the disastrous end to my life.'' Leanos' claim that this poster was a ''tribute'' to Tillman is the height of hypocrisy, and an egregious example...

    One soldier waits in a Fort Knox jail. Two others rest in graves dug just months ago. The Army says the jailed soldier, Sgt. Hasan Akbar, put the other two in the ground. But nearly a year after Maj. Gregory Stone and Capt. Christopher Scott Seifert were killed in a Kuwaiti desert, Akbar still doesn't know if he will face a court-martial in which he could receive the death penalty. His family — and the families of the deceased — are hoping the issue can be resolved. All were members of the 101st Airborne Division. "We've learned a hard lesson,"...

The statement, released Saturday, did not indicate where Akbar was being held in the...

    A large contingent of Iraq's elite Republican Guard, including 1,000 vehicles, headed Wednesday toward U.S. Marines in central Iraq - an area that already has seen the heaviest fighting of the war. Intelligence officers with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force said the Iraqi forces were headed south from Baghdad on a route that avoids advancing U.S. Army forces and leads them directly to the Marines who have been fighting in recent days around An Nasiriyah. The intelligence officers said about 3,000 Republican Guard troops were spotted in one town along Highway 7 and 2,000 more at another. In the...
