I write in response to SSG Brandon L. Cain's frustration with the naysayers back home who only find time to criticize the occupation of Iraq.
I hope that SSG Cain will be patient with the civilians he and his comrades are defending. He should know that the vast majority of us in Boyle County and in America truly appreciate his heroic efforts and his selflessness. It is tragic and sad that he must fight an enemy whose primary strategy is cowardice and the slaughter of innocents.
SSG Cain, you are right: "The media loves to exploit all the bad that comes out of Iraq with little or no coverage of all the good." But that is the nature of the media. It is the chronicle of what goes wrong, not of what goes right!
