Questioning the Deaths of Soldiers

Dear Source:
It is so disheartening to learn of the passing of these great men. As the number of fallen soldiers skyrockets at an astronomical rate in the US, it hurts to learn of the families lost, but when it hits home in our US Virgin Islands and affects the lives of those we know, it really causes one to ponder, what are we doing and why are we in Iraq? My thoughts and prayers are with their family as they mourn and try to go on with their lives without the ones they love. With the love of their family, friends and the loving arms of Jesus the Christ, the son of the Most High, God Jehovah, will comfort them during these trying times.
