In a just world, who should be the better known parent of an American soldier killed in action: Bush-bashing surrender activist Cindy Sheehan, to whom Maureen Dowd famously ascribed "absolute moral authority," or Dr. Bill Krissoff, who at the age of 60 gave up a lucrative medical practice to join the Navy in honor of his son, a United States Marine who died in Iraq?
Was that a rhetorical question?
Seriously, people like Dr. Bill Krissoff and Dr S. Ward Casscells define the meaning of the word "sacrifice," giving up lucrative practices in the civilian world to ensure our troops get the best nedical care available anywhere in the world - Semper Fidelis!!
