Most of us can name war heroes from past conflicts, but—despite living in an era of constant information—identifying heroes in the current war seems difficult, for some reason. Cindy Sheehan may be the world’s best-known protester against the Iraq war, but where are the well-known soldiers?
In advance of Memorial Day weekend, Chuck Simmins puts forward Leigh Ann Hester, Brian Chontosh and Paul Smith. Names we should know.
UPDATE. Cindy Sheehan spent the day campaigning for the release of David Hicks:
Protest organiser Mark Pendleton, from Civil Rights Defence, said Ms Sheehan empathised with Hicks’ family.
“Cindy Sheehan lost her own son in Iraq,” he said.
“She knows what David Hicks’ family must be going through.”
Well, they’ve got so much in common. Sheehan’s son volunteered to serve in a force liberating Iraq from dictatorship; Jew-hating Adelaide bogan Hicks joined al Qaeda.
