From the PI:
The Department of Defense reports the deaths of three Fort Lewis soldiers in Afghanistan. One of the soldiers was from Vancouver, Washington.
The trio died on Tuesday in Jafi, Afghanistan, from wounds sustained from an improvised explosive device.
They were identified as 43-year-old Sergeant 1st Class Rocky H. Herrera, of Salt Lake City; 25-year-old Sergeant Cory L. Clark, of Plant City, Florida, and 24-year-old Bryce D. Howard, of Vancouver.
Howard was a technical engineer who entered the military on June 16, 2002. He reported to Fort Lewis on August 19, 2003.
“If we withdraw now,” says Baird, “I am confident it will be catastrophic.”
It’s already catastrophic, Brian. George W. Bush lost this war years ago. End it.
