Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

More info on a true hero...

Name: Army Sgt. 1st Class Bradley S. Bohle

Age: 29

From: Glen Burnie, Md.

Assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group, Fort Bragg, N.C.

Incident: Army Sgt. 1st Class Bradley S. Bohle died Sept. 16 in Helmand province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his vehicle Sept. 15 with an improvised explosive device. Also killed were Army Sgt. 1st Class Shawn P. McCloskey, 33, of Peachtree, Ga., and Army Staff Sgt. Joshua M. Mills, 24, of El Paso, Texas.

Died: September 16, 2009

Sep 19, 2009 (The Baltimore Sun - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- NCBH | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating -- Ethel Bohle was in the attic of her Severn home Friday morning, retrieving photos of her grandson, Brad, from more than five dozen albums and recalling memories of the 29-year-old soldier who was killed this week in Afghanistan.
One of her favorite memories involved her husband, Edward, who died three years ago.

"They would do woodworking together, and Brad even had a lathe in his house," she said. "After they were done working, Pop would make him a milkshake and shave the ice for it. When Brad's father came to tell me the bad news, he said, 'I guess Brad and Pop are having a milkshake.' "

Sgt. 1st Class Bradley Bohle, an Army Green Beret medic serving in the 3rd Division, 7th Special Forces Group, was killed with two other soldiers when their Humvee was hit by an improvised explosive device Tuesday while they were patrolling in Helmand province.

Sergeant Bohle, who grew up in Glen Burnie, is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and three daughters, ages 9, 6 and 3. They were living in Sanford, N.C., near Fort Bragg. Sergeant Bohle had been in the military since graduating from North County High School in 1998.

It was his second tour of duty in Afghanistan since completing Special Forces training at Fort Bragg in March 2008. According to his grandmother, his first tour ended in December, and he returned in July.

"I didn't worry about him as much as I should have," Ethel Bohle said. "But that's the way he made us feel, like nothing was going to happen to us. He was so calm. I know he was a good soldier. We're going to miss him very much."

Sergeant Bohle's body arrived at 3 a.m. Friday at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, according to his grandmother. He was the 10th soldier from Anne Arundel County to be die in the line of duty in Afghanistan or Iraq since 2003.

Ethel Bohle said her grandson "pretty much grew up in my house" while his mother, Linda, was studying to be a teacher and his father, Donald, was working.

In Sergeant Bohle's high school yearbook at North County, where he transferred as a senior after spending his first three years at Glen Burnie High School, he said his career aspiration was to be a soldier. He played lacrosse and wrestled at North County.

Sergeant Bohle's younger sister, April Clark, is in a National Guard unit stationed in Goldsboro, N.C.

"He was my best friend and my hero," she told The Gazette suburban Maryland newspapers.

Through a relative, Sergeant Bohle's wife and father declined comment.

Sergeant Bohle, who had already earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
