    Army Cpl. Stanley "Stash" Lapinski a hero

    But she and her husband, Stanley Lapinski, a World War II Marine veteran, stood by their man. They somehow understood that their son felt the same sense of obligation that led others, such as professional football player Pat Tillman, to leave comfortable careers and put on a uniform.

    Then her mother's heart spoke out. Support the troops, she said, but do whatever you can to get them home.

    "Don't be blase," she said imploringly. "Get them home safe."


    Amen/ so be it!

    From The Las Vegas Sun;
    Stanely Lapinski said he and his wife do not agree that troops need to be in Iraq, but he wants to keep politics out of remembering his son.
    ------------------------------------------------
    And as it should be. Soldiers are more than a cut above Politicians and any politcal idealology.
    God Bless Em' All.

    I agree political policy is almost like trickle
    down economics to our soldiers and when we
    hear a horror story about benefits ,waiting on the
    VA, death benefits, deployments, body armor,stress syndrome, Humvee armor...then the American people must always raise the issue and pressure those in the
    administration who think they can do things
    cheaply and outsource the American soldier to
    foreign nationals and mercenaries to do the right
    thing.

    just the waste of money alone in Iraq could treat
    our soldiers and families(American)with even more
    honor.

    I think they should make a movie of this guys
    life he really did sacrifice and headed towards
    the roar like Pat Tillman.

    I agree with this mother the time has come

    "To get them home safe"
