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. Christian M. Adams

Army Spc. Christian M. Adams
Died June 11, 2010 serving during Operation Enduring Freedom

26, of Sierra Vista, Ariz.; assigned to the 20th Engineer Battalion, 36th Engineer Brigade, Fort Hood, Texas; died June 11 in Kandahar, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained in a non-combat-related incident.

(The following was taken from of June 17, 2010) A Sierra Vista soldier who died in Afghanistan late last week was described by his stepfather as a religious man who loved his family and the military.

Army Spc. Christian M. Adams, 26, died Friday of wounds from a non-combat-related incident, the Department of Defense said. No further information about his death was released this week, however.

"He was a strong-willed person," said John Roberts, 56.

Adams, a Buena High School graduate, left behind a wife, Donna, and 2-year-old daughter, Faith, both of Sierra Vista.

Roberts said Donna Adams had spoken with her husband by phone Friday morning before he died.

Adams' family traveled to the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware on Sunday to be there when his body was returned to the United States. The ceremony, during which fellow soldiers carried the casket off the plane, was simple and dignified, Roberts said.

Adams had been in Afghanistan since March in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He joined the military as a track vehicle repairer in June 2003 and previously was deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from March 2004 to March 2005.

Adams was assigned in spring 2008 to the 20th Engineer Battalion, 36th Engineer Brigade, at Fort Hood, Texas.

Circumstances surrounding his death are under investigation, the Fort Hood Public Affairs Office said.

During his years in the military, Adams received several awards and decorations, including the National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, NATO Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

Funeral arrangements are pending, Roberts said.
