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. Lance Cpl. Justin J. Wilson

Marine Lance Cpl. Justin J. Wilson
Died March 22, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

24, of Palm City, Fla.; assigned to 3rd Battalion, 10th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.; died March 22 while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

(The following was taken from of Mar. 28, 2010) STUART, Fla. -- The body of Marine Lance Cpl. Justin J. Wilson returned to the Treasure Coast on Sunday.

Wilson was killed last Monday in Afghanistan.

Holding American flags and each other, family and friends gathered at Witham Field for the fallen Marine's homecoming on a private jet.

Joel Mayne served in the Army and fought in Vietnam. He was one of hundreds of retired servicemen and women, as well as civilians, who surrounded the field to welcome the Marine home.

"Justin served his country and his Marine Corps, and I just wanted to be here and show support for that," Mayne said.

Mary Morgan's husband, Jim, served in the Navy. They're came together to pay respect to Wilson.

"As soon as we heard about it, we felt for the family and for him," she said. "He was very young, and what a tragedy."

In near silence on the tarmac, the 24-year-old's flag-draped casket was placed into an awaiting hearse.

The Patriot Guard Riders motorcycles and law enforcement vehicles escorted Wilson's body to his hometown of Palm City.

"It's sad for the family, and it's never easy to lose a child, but to have people out who respect what their son did is important," Mayne said.

Funeral services are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday at the Forest Hill Funeral Home. There will also be a memorial Mass Wednesday.
