About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. 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.

Pfc. Alan H. Newton Jr., R.I.P.

Name: Army Pfc. Alan H. Newton Jr.

Age: 26

From: Asheboro, N.C.

Assigned to the 422nd Civil Affairs Battalion, U.S. Army Reserve, Greensboro, N.C.

Incident: Army Pfc. Alan H. Newton Jr. died Oct. 2 in Murcheh, Afghanistan, from wounds sustained when he was attacked by a suicide bomber.
Newton was a civil affairs specialist with five years of military experience.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that Newton was a 2002 graduate of Southwestern Randolph High School in Asheboro, where he was a member of the football team and JROTC.

Wayne Thrift, Newton's former high school principal, said he did not know Newton well, but he knew that his classmates and teachers liked him very much.

He said Newton's death evokes mixed emotions.

"Of course, I'm greatly saddened to hear about what happened to him. My heart goes out to his family and to his friends," Thrift said.

"But I'm proud of the fact that he did pursue the military as a career and that he fought for our freedom."

Newton is survived by his wife, Lisa, and daughter, Riley, and his mother, Joyce Woodell, all of North Carolina.
