There has been much political hullaballoo of late concerning the tragic death of U. S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was recently killed in action in Iraq. Indeed, the combat death of any U.S. Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine is a sad, lamentable thing, but there are far greater evils than this, else why would they fight?
Ray Starmann is a former U.S. Army Intelligence officer and veteran of the Gulf War, where he served with the 4th Squadron, 7th Cavalry, 3rd Armored Division “Spearhead!” Mr. Starmann was a contributing writer for several years at SFTT.org, founded by the late Colonel David Hackworth. He has penned an opinion concerning this recent political uproar with which I fully agree.
