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. Pfc. William A. Blount

Army Pfc. William A. Blount
Died April 07, 2010 serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom

21, of Petal, Miss.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, Fort Stewart, Ga.; died April 7 in Mosul, Iraq, when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device.

(The following was taken from of Apr. 10, 2010) JACKSON — Army Pfc. Anthony Blount was looking forward to coming home next month for the birth his first child, a little girl to be named Avery Elizabeth.

However, the 21-year-old Petal, Miss., resident won't get the chance. He and another soldier died Wednesday in Iraq after the vehicle they were in hit a roadside bomb, according to Blount's brother-in-law, Nate McRae.

The U.S. military announced Wednesday that two American soldiers died while conducting a patrol in northern Iraq. The names were not immediately released, which follows Defense Department policy of withholding identities until a time after relatives have been notified.

"Anthony was one of most the hilarious people I've ever met. The guy was funny as hell," McRae said. "He was a really great spirit. And he was the last boy that could carry on his grandparents' name."

McRae said he tried to discourage Blount from the joining the Army nearly two years ago, but the Petal High School graduate was intent on serving in the military.

"He's extremely honorable," McRae said. "All of his commanding officers said he was just an amazing soldier. It's a tremendous loss."

Blount's wife, Amanda, is eight months pregnant.

Stephen Garrard, a director at Moore Funeral Home in Petal, confirmed Blount's death but said arrangements had not been completed.

Blount was outgoing and popular, McRae said.

"He was an amazing guitar player. He taught himself to play. He loved video games and hanging out with his friends," McRae recalled.
