Congressman Bernard had some words on his website today for Anti-War Protester Cindy Sheehan
It is terrible to lose a son, but Ms. Sheehan is using her son to advance her own personal fortune which I find much worse.
She says her son didn’t want to go yet her son volunteered. He choose to go into the armed services when the very reality of going to Iraq was palpable and tangible. After serving in Iraq Casey volunteered to stay again. I think a mother’s grief is horrible but we should not stand for her using Casey to make a personal or political profit.
