Quoting General Patton: "Let me not mourn for those who have died fighting, but rather let me be glad that such heroes have lived."

There is an incredible story of dedication and committment in today's Detroit News:

It's been more than three years and 100 funerals since John "Skip" Bushart buried his 22-year-old son, one of Michigan's first casualties in the Iraq war...He and friend John Dearing, whose son also died in Iraq, vow to continue attending the funerals of Michigan sons and daughters who die as a result of the war, and to present their families with flags.

They also have another mission -

And they're working to have monuments erected in the hometown of every fallen Michiganian.

These two gentlemen are the embodiment of that concept and are doing a great deal to keep their sons' memories alive and the others from Michigan who have been killed in action. Additionally, Mr. Bushart is executive director of the Michigan chapter of Lest They Be Forgotten, a group dedicated to the memory of the fallen. Visit the website and do what you can.

Patton was one helluva man, and so are all the other heros in uniform that give all for our country!
