Hi Terry, I work for the Dept of National Defence and it is always heartbreaking when one of our soldiers, or any soldier, dies protecting our countries. They are all Heros and my prayer go out to his family and friends.

Another member of the First Nations sacrifices all for a Country that gives so little back...Rest with the Creator.
I find it hard to believe that the American People still allow their 'Government' to hide repatriation of War Dead. What kind of Honour is that? In Canada we have the Honour Highway. People line the overpasses and sides of the highway whenever a fallen soldier is brought back, quietly but obviously supporting the soldier and his/her family. Why has your government hidden the arrival and interment of your heroes? To attempt to hide the hideous human cost of these 'wars'? I hope that American get together, especially with families and end this shameful practice!

Now he's finished his journey here on earth and can begin his extended Life on the Other Side without all this fantasy people put on titles of Media hype..
Dying in fact is awakening to the reality of Living.

Natives have always been great warriors in time of war and this is normal. I am anti war but have NEVER turned my back on any veteran. My heart breaks for the families of these kids.

The sacred navajo should not have been a blood sacrifice for the Queens chess game and the bankers playing of dice with real lives,the navajo has allready given his heart to all the destruction of mining, destruction of his hearts, his land, his animal clan and his religion,he gave too much,they took too much,and they have suffered along the path of the mother earths destruction,for too many Aeons,i pray his spirit arise to the rainbow heavens,with his ancient ones,holding his heart eternally,Nitak Fillaya
