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.

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Funeral services have been scheduled for an Upstate soldier who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

Twenty-one-year-old Pfc. Geoffrey Whitsitt's vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device on Jan. 13, officials said.

According to the Facebook page of Whitsitt's mother, funeral services will be held on Saturday, Jan. 23 at 11 a.m. at North Hills Community Church in Taylors. The Web site said that the burial would follow at Woodlawn Cemetery.

Whitsitt's mother said on the social-networking Web site that she would like people to buy flags to line the route that Whitsitt's procession will take from the church to the cemetery. She said that a procession will also take place from Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport where his body will arrive to Woods Funeral Home. The date and time of that procession was not immediately available.

According to the Web site, additional details about funeral plans for Whitsitt will be released later.

Whitsitt's father said his son made the ultimate sacrifice, doing what he always wanted to do. He said that Whitsitt had wanted to join the military since he was 4 years old.

Whitsitt was a 2007 graduate of Greenville Tech Charter High School and has an older brother, Steven, who is in the Navy.

Geoffrey Whitsitt would have turned 22 in February.
