Military Casualties Under President Obama

By Peter Andrew - ConservativeAmerican.org - Leading the way Right

To honor our brave men and women in the military, we list below the names of the fallen. This is page 3 of our list. To see page one, please click here, click here for page two, and here for page four. They gave their lives to protect and preserve our freedom. We thank them, we remember them and we honor them. Unlike other lists you may see, our list includes deaths from both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as well as other military deaths (including those killed at Fort Hood, Texas, those who died in military training exercises and from other crashes).

This post identifies these wonderful souls by name, listing the heroes who sacrificed everything for you and I. Ours is the list that author and Conservative American talk radio star Mark Levin spoke of on his show and listed on his website.

NOTE: ConservativeAmerican.org also hosts the controversial “Obama Death Count” (which people frequently misunderstand). One request please: Out of respect to the fallen, this post is not a place to debate the count itself and it is not a place to debate politics. If you’d like to do that, please visit the political post which explains why we are keeping count. You can do that by clicking hereThank you.

Now we offer our gratitude in prayerful thanksgiving to:

He was known as Mr. Fix-it by his family and friends and was a faithful Big Brother to Adam Rogers. He was a member of Faith Renewed Outreach Center and the Renovate Student Ministries. Justin was stationed at Fort Hood and was assigned as a medic in the 720th Military Police Company. He was awarded the Army Service Ribbon, the National Defense Service Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, and the Purple Heart.” Click here to read more about Private 1st Class Whitmire from Tributes.com.  He was a good and faith-filled man.  May God bless his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed listed on these pages.
