Names to remember

The Spokesman-Review

The news has been nonstop on the death of John Travolta’s son. I call him that rather than by his name, as that is the primary way the media refers to him. I am sorry for his parents; it is a great loss to them, but what exactly does it mean to me? Nothing. Does anyone out there know who the following are?

Paul R. Smith, 33; Jason Dunham, 22; Michael A. Monsoor, 25; and Ross A. McGinnis, 19.

You should know them. They all received the Congressional Medal of Honor, giving their lives in Iraq so that we can all live free. Think about it, where are your priorities?

Gordon Cooper
