I got this one from another and am doing what he ask of me, and that is to pass it on.

********************************************************************

I TRUST THIS WILL MAKE THE ROUNDS THROUGH OUR MILITARY COMMUNITY.

What Is This Picture?



Obviously, it's a picture in a cemetery. What cemetery and whose grave?

Sadly, it's the grave of Casey Sheehan. After two years, and a Dept of Defense payment of $250,000 to the "Peace Mom", Cindy Sheehan has not had the time or bothered to have a headstone placed on this young hero's grave. And, she doesn't even have to pay for one; the Dept of Defense will provide one:

"The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a government headstone or marker for the grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world. For all deaths occurring before September 11, 2001, the VA may provide a headstone or marker only for graves that are not marked with a private headstone.

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for interment of cremated remains."

Apparently she can find time to protest on at least 3 continents, get arrested various times, go on vacation in Hawaii, have photo ops with the Marxists in Venezuela, but can't seem to find the time to properly mark her son's grave.

Ever wonder what the expression "stuck on stupid" meant?

Well here is an example:



The grinning idiot clinging to Je$$e Jack$on is Cindy Sheehan... the sob sister protesting the war at Bush's ranch, who lost her son in the war, the same son she gave up in her divorce when he was 7 years old.

And by the way if you wonder why she has so much free time ... she is going through another divorce right now and guess what? She is giving up custody of another son.

As Forest Gump once wisely proclaimed, "Stupid is as stupid does."

Please DO pass this one along</u>

PS:

"Casey Sheehan's grave lacked a headstone for the first two years after his death:
True.

Casey Sheehan's grave is not now marked with a headstone: False."

So.... a year ago, maybe when this email started making the rounds, it was true. But not anymore.

She fought to keep it off. She said the Army didn't give her enough money to afford one. Turns out the funeral home director gave her a large discount on the cost. Well below his cost. For the funeral not the headstone. And she said she didn't want the headstone because it would mean closure and she couldn't bear that. So the rest of the family gets to be tortured with her until she feels like putting up the stone.

That women is not right in the head.

It's not about her son---from her actions and words, and the way she conducts herself-it's about her-attention, who knows how much in donations and sympathy...to honor her son, she should talk to the parents of all the other brave men and women who have served and died or been wounded in this conflict-the ones who got no money from the Gov't except their loved ones' life ins...if they had any. She has brought dishonor to her son's name-and done the cause no good...noone takes her seriously....why should they? She has become the pawn of those who are against the war and the current administration.

I agree Sheepdog, the son wouldn't be very proud of his mother. Sounds like he wasn't very proud of her before he became a casualty.

She like others in the past, have learned how to work the system in the USA.
People "Good People" will donate to just about anything that has to do with a Veteran or child in this country. Then you have those who sadly but surely take the money and run or hide their true feelings.

She never did give a Tinkers Damn, just what she could get out of the situation. Her son is a Hero but she is one of those on the lower end of the "scum bag" poll in my eyes.:mad:

Careful with Snopes... do a search here on Rugerforum. There was a big bust a while back. They never had my trust...
