From Crawford, TX to Boise, ID: Gold Star Families Follow Bush to Demand Answers on War in Iraq


From Crawford Update

Idahoans tell the President¦

"Mr. Bush, Every Town Has a Cindy and Casey"

Tuesday Noon Dedication of Iraq War Memorial to Feature Comments from Military Mom and War Widow

Boise, ID, Tuesday, August 23, 12:00 pm: While President Bush is mountain biking 100 miles north of Boise Tuesday, local citizens opposed to the Iraq war and supporting the efforts of Gold Star mother Cindy Sheehan will gather in downtown Boise at 12:00 noon to dedicate a memorial to the Iraq War.

The gathering will feature remarks from Gold Star wife Melanie House of Simi Valley, CA, the 27-year-old widow of Petty Officer 3rd Class John House, who was killed in Iraq on January 27, 2005; and, Laura McCarthy, the mother of a soldier serving in the Army National Guard's 116th Calvary Brigade in Iraq.

The Iraq War Memorial in Boise consists of small white crosses or stakes for the more than 1,860 U.S. service members who have died thus far in the Iraq War. Military families and veterans in Idaho would like answers to some of the same questions Ms. Sheehan has asked while waiting to meet with the President outside of his ranch in Crawford, Texas including: What is this "noble cause"
