Fort Stewart soldier killed in Iraq


Fort Stewart soldier killed in Iraq Cpl. Brandon S. Hocking, 24, of Seattle, Wash., died Monday in As Samawah, Iraq, when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.

I am so sad about these deaths.

And I do realize there is still a war going on there.

I am always sad about wars and deaths.

I salute those brave soldiers.

It is disgusting that there are still confrontations going on in Iraq, there must still be some resources left to rape. What is the bet that as soon as Iraq is a barren wasteland of a country with nothing left, the US will have left by then.

How long do you think we are going to be in Afghanistan for? My bet is until the Middle East has had all its power 'Localised'.

Wrenches my heart with any loss of a soldier. Its time for them to come home, back to their families. These wars are senseless. Unfortunately the soldier have to do as they are ordered and go where they are told. The loss experianced is great and felt down into the soul. Another tear shed for the loss of a potential friend, brother/sister, commrad.

GOD help us all learn to settle things peacefully. And keep evil at bay.

Rest In Peace.

More lives lost over a senseless war.
When will this MADNESS stop.
How many more parents will send their the children to an early grave for the lies and greed of our Leaders.

Well, I look at it this way - World War 2 ended in 1945. The US has bases in Germany and Japan still.

Hitler.....yea im pretty sure hes dead.....but we're still there.....65 or so years ago......

Saddam.....yea we got him, im pretty sure hes dead to......but we're still there......a few years ago......

Bin Laden......heck, we dont even know where he is or if hes dead or alive......we're going to be there a long time.

Once the US invades and "mission accomplished" (yea right....).... we love you long time......

Edit - Also Korea, but the war technichally hasnt ended yet

Vietnam - We lost.

If the state run Obama media doesn't report it the dumb Americans don't care.
As a Marine that loves our country we will be seen as the dumbest people ever to live on this planet. Even with so much information at our fingertips....

3 Wars and counting.

Obviously if we want our boys home we are gonna have to make it happen ourselves. I am lucky enough to have come home, so I will spend the rest of my life trying to make this happen if I have to. My heart goes out to all the good men overseas. Keep in mind that most of the bad ones didn't leave that way but they may still not be a lost cause.
