There has been a lot of publicity surrounding Christine Sheehan, the mother of one of our brave young men who lost his life in Iraq. She has aligned herself with the anti-war advocates and moveon.org. and has generated much interest in the media for her outspoken chastizements of President Bush and the War on Terror and the War in Iraq.
As a former military wife who sat through four of my husband's Vietnam tours and agonized nightly any time he was on deployment, I can certainly sypathize with Ms. Sheehan. Unfortunately, I cannot agree with her or the tactics she has chosen to work through her grief.
We owe her comfort and support in her grief for her loss is something she'll live with the rest of her life. But, her son's death should not be devalued and that is what is happening here. The story has become about Ms. Sheehan and the loss of her son ... calling his sacrifice for nothing. The story is not about Ms. Sheehan and to lose sight of this fact is even a greater disservice to her son. He chose to join the military and, although I never knew him, I'm sure that he was proud of his service. Ms. Sheehan may not have fully appreciated that when her son joined the military, and through his training, had a full understanding that he may be asked to pay the ultimate sacrifice. He deserves to be honored for that sacrifce, not have his death belittled by calling it "for nothing." And, I'm 100% positive that Ms. Sheehan's son would not want the job he did or the job so many other brave young men and women do every day to be devalued in the way his mother is doing now. Grieve for your son, Cindy, but don't publicly demoralize the rest of our troops and encourage our enemies.
