    CHELSEA - People who knew Army Staff Sgt. John Doles and many who didn't took up U.S. flags Tuesday in his hometown to honor his sacrifice and defy an outside group that sought to turn the slain soldier's funeral into a stage for its message of hate. As Doles' funeral procession rolled past the brick buildings of the small town where he grew up, men, women and children stood with tears in their eyes and hands on their hearts. "Respect," said 73-year-old Betty Benson, explaining why she waved a flag for the 29-year-old she never knew. "I think he deserves...

    All of us arrived at Crim Dell Meadow and the caravan of aging hippie throwbacks had already setup shop. According to Flora McDonald she had spoken to William and Mary previously about our counter protest. She was reassured we would be seen by both students and anti-war protesters. We were shocked to learn that the school had gone back on its word and sent us a football field or so away from the antiwar protest. Worse than that, the area had little foot traffic and shade (something the cindy sheehan’s group did have). So I walked over to the college...

I apologize for the realtively inconvenient master list format, but I haven't had time to compose a more user-friendly chronological version.Please, please, make sure you counter these...

    Washington Times ^ | August 31, 2005 | WashTimes editorial writer
    The leftist protesters who gather every Friday night outside Walter Reed Medical Center are inspired by a radical agenda that few if any soldiers share. The protesters -- organized by the radical antiwar group CodePink and others -- have been photographed with signs bearing insults like "Maimed for a Lie" and "Died for Halliburton." They have lined mock flag-draped coffins outside the hospital. These cannot be meant to heal the wounds of those whom the nation has sent to battle. The protesters insist they have the soldiers' best interests at heart, and that they don't intend to demean anyone. This...
