About Me

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.

Name: Army Staff Sgt. Amy C. Tirador

Age: 29

From: Albany, N.Y.

Assigned to the 209th Military Intelligence Company, 1st Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, Fort Lewis, Wash.

Incident: Army Staff Sgt. Amy C. Tirador died Nov. 4 in Kirkush, Iraq, of injuries sustained from a non-combat-related incident.

(Taken from A 29-year-old Fort Lewis soldier on her second tour of duty in Iraq died Wednesday in what the Department of Defense is calling a noncombat incident, according to a news release issued Friday.

Staff Sgt. Amy C. Tirador, of Colonie, N.Y., died in Kirkush, the release said. She was a member of the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division – the Army’s original Stryker brigade – which deployed to Iraq in August for the third time since 2003.

Tirador was assigned to the 209th Military Intelligence Company. Family members said she worked as an Arabic-speaking interrogator.

According to unit records, she enlisted in March 1999 and reported to Fort Lewis in January 2008. Along the way, she was trained and served as a medic, a tracked-vehicle driver and mechanic, and finally as a military intelligence collector with Arabic-language training.

In 2004, she was credited with saving an American soldier shot during a convoy mission, according to military reports cited by her hometown newspaper, the Albany Times Union.

“I’m very proud of my daughter,” her father, Gerard Seyboth, told the Times Union on Thursday.

She met her husband, Mickey, while stationed in Germany, and they married two years ago, according to the newspaper.

We hate to see these loses, particularly amoung the young women. My daughter is in training as an arabic interpreter. I don't let my wife see things like this.

I do not understand how a nation does not give rights to the unborn, babies are people too. And it is there body too! Each baby has a unique face, and a purpose in life, who are we to kill babies in abortions. A baby is fully formed at 8 weeks my GOD. Have you heard of partial birth abortion, I have seen a video of this, it is barbaric. I made this comment because of the Flag posted on the web page. Good Job!
