Today, Remembrance Day, I have chosen to pay tribute to three US soldiers who were ambushed in Iraq more than ten years ago. One was killed on the spot - Spc. David J. Babineau, 25, of Springfield, MA. He was the lucky one. The two others, Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Oregon, and Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, Texas, were abducted, tortured, and murdered in a grueseome way.
Lest we forget:
Remember and honor the fallen.
