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. Daniel C. Lawson

Name: Army Spc. Daniel C. Lawson

Age: 33

From: Deerfield Beach, Fla.

Assigned to the 569th Mobility Augmentation Company, 4th Engineer Battalion, Fort Carson, Colo.

Incident: Army Spc. Daniel C. Lawson died Oct. 15 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an IED. Also killed were Spc. Jesus O. Flores Jr., Staff Sgt. Glen H. Stivison Jr. and Pfc. Brandon M. Styer.

Died: October 15, 2009

(Taken from DEERFIELD BEACH — A Deerfield Beach man is among four soldiers reported killed in Afghanistan last week when their vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device in Kandahar province, the Department of Defense announced today.
Spc. Daniel Courtney Lawson, 33, was assigned to the 569th Mobility Augmentation Company, 4th Engineer Battalion, Fort Carson, Colo. Also killed in the Oct. 15 attack were: Staff Sgt. Glen H. Stivison Jr., 34, of Blairsville, Pa.; Spc. Jesus O. Flores, Jr., 28, of La Mirada, Calif; and Pfc. Brandon M. Styer, 19, of Lancaster, Pa.

Fort Carson spokesman Devin Fisher said Lawson joined the Army in January 2008 and was deployed to Iraq on Feb. 15, 2009. From there, he was sent to Afghanistan in May.

Lawson earned the National Defense Service Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal and Campaign Star, and the Iraq Campaign Medal and Campaign Star.

His mother, Carolyn Lawson, said joining the Army was partly a financial decision for Lawson, who was born and raised in Deerfield Beach and graduated from Deerfield Beach High School in 1994.

"He was so full of life," his mother said. "Outgoing. Helpful. Kind. Considerate. A fun-loving, big kid."

Married since 1998, Lawson and his wife, Latoria, have three children. His oldest daughter, Kiara, is 10. Kourtney, also a girl, is 8. And their youngest child, a 5-year-old boy, is named Kevon.

Lawson earned an associate's degree in computer programming from ITT Technical Career Institute and worked as a teacher's assistant in the Broward County school system. But he joined the military for a more stable financial future for his family, she said.

"Each day, I'm accepting it a little bit more," Carolyn Lawson said of losing her son. "My faith in God is that He knows what is best. That's where my strength comes from."

Funeral arrangements are pending.

Lawson was the first serviceman from Broward to be killed in action this year, and the fourth from South Florida.
