(CNN) - Joanne Gutcher sits on the cold ground at Arlington National Cemetery Saturday. For the first time, she is seeing her son's headstone.
Around her, family and friends hold each other, touch the headstone. Among the visitors is Gena Hernandez, who served with Gutcher's son in Iraq. Hernandez believes she wouldn't have made it back without him. He was an excellent gunner.
My best to you at Christmas time, and I wish to honor your son for his bravery and your loss, love from all Americans!!
So very sad. God rest their souls and walk with their families. They did their jobs, others have not.
War is a terrible thing and rarely necessary. Yet our blood-thirsty "leaders" pursue it far too much.
