Another Pennsylvanian Soldier Killed in Iraq

Sgt. Jennifer Marie Hartman of Tamaqua was killed by a suicide bomber on September 14th. The Schuylkill County resident was afraid of "getting blown up in Iraq." When she enlisted four years ago her Army recruiter promised she wouldn't be deployed to Iraq. That's one more story about how these recruiters say anything to meet their quotas.

Pennsylvania is second in states with the most fatalities in Iraq. Our people are paying the ultimate price. Why? Ms. Hartman died, according to President Bush, to honor those who died before her. Who will have to die to honor Jennifer Hartman?

Godspeed to Ms. Hartman and our thoughts and prayers go to her family and friends.
