Meet Spc. Casey Sheehan:
On April 4, 2004, Casey
Sheehan lost his life in Iraq serving his country.
Casey was assigned to 1st Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery
Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas. He was killed April 4
when his unit was attacked with rocket-propelled grenades and
small-arms fire in Baghdad.
Army Maj. Gen. Rodney Kobayashi described Casey as "A Soldier's soldier."
He was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star posthumously.
Over 1,000 people attended his funeral to celebrate his life and
say good-bye to a very popular, well liked young man.
Specialist Sheehan re-enlisted in the Army in 2004 knowing full
well that he could be sent into a combat zone.
When Casey Sheehan's Sergeant asked for volunteers for the last
mission Casey would go on, he had just returned from Mass. After
Sheehan volunteered once, the Sergeant asked Sheehan again if he
wanted to go on the mission. According to many reports (and
according to his own mother), Casey responded, "Where my Chief
goes, I go."
On June 24, 2004, President George Bush met with Casey's
parents and other parents of fallen soldiers. A quote from
an interview with Cindy & Pat Sheehan,
"I now know he's sincere about wanting
freedom for the Iraqis," Cindy said after their meeting. "I know
he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man
By the time July, 2005 came, she (Cindy Sheehan) was saying the
absolute opposite: "Instead of a kind
gesture or a warm handshake, Sheehan said she immediately got a
taste of Bush arrogance when he entered the room and "in a
condescending tone and with a disgusting loud Texas accent," said:
"Who we’all honorin’ here today?"
Suddenly not only her story changes, but she is demanding
"another" meeting with President Bush. She is now planted
outside his ranch in Crawford Texas. She and her sycophants
are putting up crosses for fallen soldiers. Some of these
crosses are put up (twice) over the objection of the parent of the
soldier. And she talks about "Texas
She is fast becoming just as obnoxious as Hanoi-Jihadist Jane
From an article at "The Radio Equalizer" by Brian Maloney,
truth is that the men and women in military and their families are
the strongest supporters of the war on terrorism, and they do not
agree with the message or antics of Cindy Sheehan.
Their voices must now be heard - and with your help we will make
sure they ARE heard. It is also important to note that every time
there are stories that Americans do not support the troops
fighting in Iraq it emboldens the terrorist insurgents fighting
We cannot allow MoveOn.org, Michael Moore, and Cindy Sheehan to communicate a false sense of weakness to the terrorists overseas."
The one good thing that has come out of Cindy Sheehan's about
face is there are groups springing up in support of our president
and our troops.
Move Forward America is just one of many. They are
sponsoring a tour called, "You Don't Speak For Me, Cindy".
The tour is not surprisingly well received wherever it goes.
You won't hear about it on CNN, or any of the other news networks.
The media chooses to spout its defeatism because negative
reporting has become popular. There's a slogan, "If it
bleeds, it leads," in the journalistic community and it is
followed like scripture!
Look out Kerry - Cindi wants a Purple Heart too!
Peace Activist Sheehan Hurt at Rally
Associated Press, NEW YORK | Sep 20, 2005
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan said Tuesday she was hurt slightly in a scuffle that erupted when police broke up a rally as she was at the microphone.
An organizer was arrested and charged with using a loudspeaker without a permit.
"I was speaking and someone grabbed my backpack and pulled me back pretty roughly," Sheehan said, describing the scene at Manhattan's Union Square on Monday. "I was shoved around."
