Georgia breeds heroes. In the war with Iraq we already have many heroes in this war. Out of the thousands of personnel Georgia has in Iraq there has been an abundanceof people making headlines .We have got several milatary bases. The people that train there and work there we consider Georgians. So when anything happens to these people good or bad we weep or rejoice. We unfortunateley had several losses of our fine inj the past weeks. But we have also had stories and statements and testimonials in the battlefield that say Georgian troops are among the best
As an example Capt. Chris Carter (from OconeeCt. G.A.)was in a firefight with Iraqi solders. While driving his defense vehicle he saw a women caught in the crossfire on a bridge. He jumped out of the truck to bravely sheild the wounded Iraqi woman caught in the crossfire.
As Georgians and Americans we are proud and support our fellow Americans in their effort. It's unfortunate that Georgia has greater losses than most states of their fine men and women.
