Two Ohio Women Heading to "Peace Mom" Protest
Aug 24, 2005, 7:11 AM

COLUMBUS (AP) -- Two Columbus-area women with children in the military headed Tuesday to Texas to join an anti-war demonstration outside President Bush's ranch.

Teresa Dawson, 42, of Gahanna, said she has been against the war since it began. One of her children is serving with the Ohio National Guard in Iraq. "We are asking questions," she said. "We'd like the courtesy of truthful answers."

Dawson will lend support to the demonstration begun by Cindy Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son died in Iraq last year. Sheehan began the protest in Crawford, Texas, on Aug. 6. She left about two weeks later after her mother had a stroke, but plans to return.

Other military family members have kept the protest going, including three Dayton-area residents who flew to Texas on Sunday. "I don't want to see my fellow Americans die for the wrong reasons," said Steve Fryburg, 51, of Bellbrook, whose son served in Iraq. "I think that's patriotic."

The group also included the wife of a reservist and the mother of a Gulf War veteran.
