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.

Age: 23

From: Brooklyn, N.Y.

Died: October 04, 2009

(The following was taken from 23-year-old Army soldier from Brooklyn died earlier this week in Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

Spc. Kevin O. Hill, of East New York, died Sunday at Contingency Outpost Dehanna when enemy forces attacked his unit using small arms and indirect fires, the Department of Defense said in a news release. He was assigned to the 576th Mobility Augmentation Company, Fort Carson, Colo.

Hill enlisted in the Army last year to follow in his father's footsteps, his sister, Chinyere Hill, said Wednesday. Their father, Oslen Hill, 52, served in Operation Desert Storm during the 1991 Persian Gulf conflict, she said.

Kevin Hill was born in Fayetteville, N.C., and spent his early childhood at Fort Bragg, his sister said, until the family moved to Bushwick when he was 5.

He graduated from John Dewey High School and received a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from Monroe College, his sister said.

Last Friday, he called home and spoke to their mother, Mahalia Hill. "He said he was doing OK," recalled Chinyere Hill, 26, adding that he also expressed worry over friends who had died in the war.

"My mom said, 'Be focused and try not to think about it too much,' " his sister said.

Hill was quiet, enjoyed playing video games and visiting museums, his favorite being the Brooklyn Museum, his sister said.

"He was really determined and goal-focused," she said, adding that he had aspirations of moving up in the military.

Hill had been in Afghanistan only a few months, his sister said. Because he was a prison guard, his family hoped that would mean he would be safer, she said: "He told us he was going to be OK because he wouldn't be out in the field."

His tour was set to end in February, his sister said, and he had been home for two weeks in August.

"We're still in disbelief," his sister said. "We're hoping it's a mistake. We don't even know the details of what happened. It's surreal."

He is also survived by another sister, Shantel Hill, 17. Funeral arrangements are pending, his family said.
