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. Pvt. John P. Dion

Army Pvt. John P. Dion

19, of Shattuck, Okla.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Carson, Colo.; died Jan. 3 in Ashoque, Afghanistan, from wounds sustained when insurgents attacked their unit with multiple improvised explosive devices and small-arms fire.

(Taken from of Jan. 6, 2010) SHATTUCK — U.S. Army Pvt. John P. Dion’s half brother said he had a bad feeling when Dion decided to enlist in the Army.

"(But) he wanted to serve his country, and he’s a hero,” said Justin Werve, 26, of Shattuck.

Dion, a 19-year-old Shattuck High School graduate, and two other soldiers died Sunday in Afghanistan, the U.S. Defense Department confirmed Tuesday.

Dion moved to Shattuck from California during his sophomore year of high school, Werve said.

Dion’s family moved to Georgia after he graduated from Shattuck.

Werve, a U.S. Air Force veteran who served in Iraq, said his own feelings about Dion’s enlistment weren’t enough to dissuade him.

"Even though he disagreed with his family, he was always there for them,” Werve said. "He was very protective of his family and very committed to whatever he did.”

Dion was a standout athlete during his time in Shattuck, said Coby Nelson, high school principal and Dion’s baseball coach. Dion was the starting centerfielder on the baseball team and a backup on the football team.

"He was a leader on the baseball team,” Nelson said. "We improved our program, and he was a big part of it. We won the district tournament last year, and that was very important to him. He was proud of that.”

Werve said he will remember Dion’s irrepressible optimism and humor.

"He was a prankster,” Werve said.

"He always used to play jokes on people. He was the happy-go-lucky type.”

Memorial service plans have not been announced.
