John I'll never forget you and all the good times we had growing up together. You were more than just a neighbor, you were a true friend. I will miss you greatly, but I'll always have the memories. You're a true hero, then, now, and forever.

John Sigsbee's mother requested that in her son's memory that we all support the troops. I don't know anyone that doesn't support the troops. Does supporting the troops mean that we have to support George W. Bush' decision to go to war?
