Getting them out of Afghanistan should be second only to getting everyone out of the middle east period. Seems like a long long time ago on a different forum I had wondered what the concept would be when the total number of war dead equaled or exceeded the number of dead in the WTC.

Since that time it has doubled more or less the WTC toll .. but those are the one's that are no longer suffering. For every one killed over there, ten or more are coming home with severe physical or mental problems which has a ripple effect on all others.

Ton's of money is being solicited for the Wounded Warrior's .. which the government owes the greatest debt to but apparently is not stepping up to the plate.

100 million dollars spent on vacations for Obama and family .. much less the trillion or so needlessly spent on so much pork .. could have gone a long way toward fixing that. But then I regress by even thinking that the government would spend any money wisely.

Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain

9 killed so far this year with the promise that we will remove combat forces by year end regardless of whether the mission has been fulfilled. Why wait?

Thanks again, grumpygy.

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -
The Department of Defense confirmed Tuesday the death of Marine Master Sgt. Aaron C. Torian, 36.

They say he died Feb. 15 while conducting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was assigned to 2d Marine Special Operations Battalion, Marine Special Operations Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

There are many heavy hearts in the Paducah community as the news of Torian's death on the battlefields of Afghanistan sinks in.

The Heartland Worship Center in Paducah was Master Sergeant Torian's home away from home, when he was home on leave from the military.

He was just there at Christmastime this past year.

On Saturday, the decorated and highly recognized war hero was fatally injured in a IED attack in Afghanistan. Pastor Don Young says he remembers getting the call from Torian's step-father informing him about his death.


"Jim called back and he said, "pastor, Aaron didn't make it." Well, to make a long story short, I grieved and everybody that knew Esta [Torian's mother] and her family grieved. This whole church was shook up. This city is shook up."

Now those who knew him, are sharing their thoughts of the little boy who grew up to become a Marine.

"He would make a point to come by and say hi and give us a big 'ol hug; and, just tell us about some of the things he remembered in children's church when we were his teachers," said Gail Rothrock of Paducah. "I'm just crushed, there's just no words that can say what this has done. And what he meant to us and his family. He was a wonderful young man. And what an honor and privilege to have known him."

On Sunday his Heartland Worship Center family honored the Marine with a moment of silence and prayer.

"I think there's two kinds of people. Those who run into the mess and danger to try to do something about it. And those who run from it," Pastor Nathan Joyce said. "Aaron was the kind to run into it. He loved being a Marine. And he loved what he did.

Master Sergeant Torian was serving his sixth tour of combat duty, when his military career was cut short there in Afghanistan.

He leaves behind a wife and three children.


U.S. Marine Master Sergeant Aaron Torian will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors.
