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. Adrian L. Avila

Name: Army Spc. Adrian L. Avila

Age: 19

From: Opelika, Ala.

Assigned to the 1343rd Chemical Company, 151st Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Battalion, 115th Fires Brigade of the Alabama National Guard, Fort Payne, Ala.

Incident: Army Spc. Adrian L. Avila died Oct. 29 at Khabari Crossing, Kuwait, of injuries sustained from a noncombat-related accident.

Died: October 29, 2009

(Found via To his brothers and sisters in arms, Adrian L. Avila was a comrade and fellow serviceman.

To Ruben Avila and Donna Lawson, he was their son.

Both groups, along with dozens of friends, gathered at Jeffcoat-Trant Funeral Home Thursday to pay tribute to Avila, 19, who died Oct. 29 of injuries sustained in a non-combat-related accident while supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom in Kuwait.

The fact that her son opted to serve in the U.S. Army is something Lawson said was indicative of his sense of self-sacrifice.

“He always cared more for others than he did for himself,” Lawson said. “He had a hard life, but he wasn’t going to let anyone bring him down. All he wanted to do is serve his country, make something of himself and do the right thing.”

These were goals U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class James Dunkley said Avila accomplished in his short life.

“If there was one soldier you could always call on and depend on, Spc. Avila was that soldier,” Dunkley said as he stood near Avila’s flag-draped coffin.

Sgt. Bernard Murray, who recruited Avila a couple of years ago, agreed.

“He (Avila) had a true sense of patriotism,” Murray added.

While some remember him as a soldier and son, Kevin Danford said he’ll remember Avila as a friend who had a passion for the Army and loved to work on his car in his spare time.

“He was always in a good mood,” said Danford, who had been friends with Avila for about five years. “You never saw him without a smile on his face.”
