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.

R.I.P. Spc Robert Donevski




Army Spc. Robert Donevski

19, of Sun City, Ariz.; assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, Fort Carson, Colo.; died Jan. 16 in Abad, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit using small-arms fire.

(Taken from www.azcentral.com of Jan. 20, 2010) The Defense Department says a 19-year-old soldier from Sun City has been killed in Afghanistan.

Robert Donevski died Saturday of gunshot wounds he suffered when a small band of Taliban insurgents ambushed his unit in Abad, his father said Wednesday.

Ganko Donevski, a Vietnam veteran, said his son died defending other members of his unit and will receive the Bronze Star.

He said Robert always longed to serve in the military like his father and vowed to enlist after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

"He said, 'Daddy, I'll make them pay for this 9-11,' " Ganko Donevski remembers.

He said he son had recently been promoted to the rank of sergeant.

Donevski was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division.

He joined the Army in July 2008 and was deployed to Afghanistan in June 2009.

I love your pieces about the fallen. I read them.

I helps me to remember that America is not nearly in as much trouble as I think, for we still produce good folks who think something is more important than themselves.

I just found your blog via "Boarding In Bedlam." Thanks for posting about a brave American soldier. My bother-in-law served 15 months in Iraq and just started a stint in Afghanistan.

Marilynk1122, I'm sorry for your loss.

I.R., thanks. I've been posting these glorified obituaries to remind anyone reading them that the military is made up of regular folks. Some of them join up for patriotic reasons, others to smooth their lives out, others because they seek direction. Regardless of why they join, everyone of the men and women I've posted about refused to take the easy way. Let's face it, in this day and age anyone who deserted from the military rather than face combat would be treated as a hero in some quarters. These true heros didn't do that. Every damned one was a "stand up" type who shouldered their committement and the danger entailed.

God rest their souls.

Big Doofus, thanks for the service of your BIL. He's in my prayers. God bless him.
