Close to Home--Again
Timshel notes that two more soldiers from Louisiana were killed in Iraq today. Apparently their Bradley Fighting Vehicle was hit by a large bomb. There's more here:
[killed were] Robert Sweeney, III of Pineville and William Manuel of Oberlin.
Sweeney and Manuel were members of the 256th Infantry Brigade of the Louisiana National Guard.
A bomb big enough to disable a Bradley vehicle has to be very large. This is a very bad sign.
My condolences to the families.
