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.

R.I.P. Sgt. Charles I. Cartwright

Name: Marine Sgt. Charles I. Cartwright

Age: 26

From: Union Bridge, Md.

Assigned to 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Incident: Marine Sgt. Charles I. Cartwright died Nov. 7 while supporting combat operations in Farah province, Afghanistan.

Died: November 07, 2009

(Taken from It's an especially difficult Veterans Day for one Frederick County community that has just learned a local soldier has died in Afghanistan.

Cartwright is a decorated Marine from rural Frederick County where he attended Walkersville High School and was very popular.

"He was very charismatic and enthusiastic about life. He walked into a room, the room stopped, Charlie's here," said Beth Slagle, friend.

The high school's flag flew at half-mast Wednesday, and the students and faculty stopped for a moment of silence for Cartwright.

The former wrestler stayed in touch, visiting faculty between his five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

People say he talked of being a Marine since middle school.

"Charlie lived the mission. He had a dream to be a Marine. He took his job and his oath to his country to heart, and he lived it," said Susan Pardo, former teacher.

Cartwright's military record is exemplary. He had two Purple Hearts after being injured twice and he had a medal for heroism for saving the life of another.

Trained as a sniper, Cartwright worked in Special Operations. He died Saturday in combat in Farah Province, Afghanistan.

His former wrestling coach says he worked hard as a team member and carried that drive into his adult life.

"When he was with us at Walkersville wrestling team, he was a very dedicated team player, very intense wrestler. He worked very hard," said Bryan Biehl, wrestling coach.

Sgt. Cartwright's parents will be holding a memorial service Monday in Union Bridge.
