Funeral for a fallen hero...

Photo shows marines carrying the casket of Sgt. Brock Babb into St. Boniface Catholic Church in Evansville, Indiana. Babb and a fellow Marine were killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq on October 15.

The US military said 96 US troops have died so far in October. The rise in deaths has been a major factor behind rising anti-war sentiment in the United States.

I know that some of my more conservative friends have become disenchanted with this war. This could have a major impact on the upcoming midterm elections.
