It seems like everytime I pick up an outdated paper, or catch a news show on TV, Jessica Lynch is in the news. I relly hate the race card thing but what makes her so special?? Recently another female was killed of Hispanic origins and you barely see a blip of what happened to her.
What about the marine company that lost 6 people b/c the tanks that were their support were diverted to rescue the 507th?
What about SFC Smith who is being put in for the Medal of Honor for killing 20-50 Iraqis and stopping a counter-attack single handly before he was killed himself?
and the list goes on..........
I see no million dollar book deals for any of them but get in a wreck, "forget" your ordeal and you're a hero I really do fail to see why this (she) is being pushed down our throats, while others are regulated to lesser status.
I did a paper once and this reminds me of an incident in the Korean War; a black soldier was credited with more kills (@250) than Audie Murphy or Alvin York combined, but no one ever hears his name in the ame breath.
If this is not racism at its finest then what does make a hero?
Good people of AA.org
don't mind me I'm just venting a little frustrastion......
