God bless him and his family. HE IS A HERO.

Hopefully the town of Kearny, even Harrison and Hudson County take the deserved time to honor Edward. Don't know him at all, but he is in my prayers tomorrow.

Please, agree with the war or not, do not use this thread to discuss; start another one.

Please use this subject to honor Edward.

And to you with the erroneous last post info...... get lost
