In reply to: Jay 's message, "I'll have to think about that . . ." on 20:47:35 08/29/06 Tue

Of course I don't mind answering. My father was born and raised in Box Elder County, and he inherited some cemetary plots from his father. When my son was killed, my husband was still in the military and we didn't know where we would be sent next, so when my father offered us a site, we took him up on it. I used to know Brigham City
pretty well, and my cousins grew up there, as I have several aunts and uncles who lived there, so we made trips up there when we went to Utah.

I love the place. It is homey, comforting and very Utah-pioneerish. My dad's cousin owned the Idle Isle cafe at one time and they still make the best candy in the world.

Jonathan's grave is sited where he can look out over the valley and he is in the foothills of the mountains, where he wanted to be.

My husband was forced into retirement because of my injuries, so he retired from the military around two years ago.

Just so you know, Jay, I didn't support the war in iraq just because of my husband. I saw it as part of the Afghanistan war as well as the changes that have been made to the Consitution over the years. Heck, we did a ten year war in Kosovo without UN sanctions and the Kosovars and ethnic Albanians are starting (after ten years) to play nice together.

I don't see a short stay as being possible until the Iraqis really begin to understand what they have in common and most of them don't want sharia law. Had it been up to me, I would have let Saddam alone and concentrated on bin Laden. There is a reason why we have bounty hunters, ya know?

Thanks for listening.
