Texas veteran who urged his son to enlist rejoins the Army himself after his son is killed in Iraq because he wants to be a "positive influence o
FORT WORTH, Texas, March 18 A Texas man has re-enlisted in the Army after his son was shot and killed in Iraq.

Francisco T. Paco Martinez, 43, felt guilt after his son, 17-year-old Paquito died in Iraq, because he feels he strongly encouraged his son to join the military, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. With advice from his father, Paquito joined the military and was deployed to Iraq. On March 20, 2005, Paquito was fatally shot in the back by a sniper in Ramadi.

A reporter who had been with Paquito and his brigade at the time of the shooting, described the teenager as very likable and lively.

Paco Martinez eventually, a former staff sergeant in the Air Force, persuaded his wife to support him in re-enlisting as a way to honor Paquito.

I may not be able to end the war or end the atrocities such as Haditha or Abu Ghraib, but if I can positively influence one of those 20-year-old kids and help him, maybe somebody else is going to come home safe, he told the Star-Telegram.

21255,
Oh please have some compassion for this man. Can you understand the anguish and guilt he is feeling?

Nope. Just 3. As a matter of fact the one poster that was openly agianst Bush, or as you would say "a Libreral", was asking for compassion on the part of the father, not really lie, deny and smearing, is it?

The cutoff is currently 42. Perhaps he had his birthday right after he enlisted?

More like the tree didn't fall far from the nut.

I wonder if natural selection applies to those living in the brainwashing miasma that is this world.

Though truly, only the strongest survive.
"And though I believe in the ineffable glory of God, and though I might have experienced the undeniable reality of the Deity, and though I may know the secrets of the ages, these do not fulfill the Love in my heart. But to Change and Be and Do and dissolve both the subject of my person and the object of my God into the fluency of Empirical Providence. The Way, the Truth, and the Life."

How ever the father feels, dying as sacrificial fodder in some satanic war mongers death-orgy war of terror, counts as in vain.

Not that Jesus doesnt still love him. =)
