Please, Everyone Take A Moment To Thank Them

Troop Deaths Put a Heavy Toll On A&M

More than five years into America's war on terrorism, the routine at Texas A&M University — home of the Corps of Cadets — is well-established. When an Aggie is killed, the school's maroon flag is hoisted in mourning. Then it is lowered, folded and shipped to yet another grieving family.

That procedure was followed this week as the military confirmed Sean Edward Lyerly, Class of 1998, a former member of Company L-1, the Corps' Lone Star company, had died in combat in Iraq.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I was unaware of the recent losses your brave Corps Of Cadets has sustained in fighting our most recent war. Please let me, at this time, offer you my most sincere condolences. Whatever your troop's personal politics, let them know that we deeply honor their sacrifice and consider them true American heroes. You may go to:

and see the memorial I have posted in their honor. Thank you for being patriotic Americans. I stand behind you 100%
