Well, I knew she had mentioned him, but I didn't know how thorough and wonderful her comments were.  It means so much to me that she would take the time to honor one of our fallen heroes.  It seems so many forget they are still dying in Iraq and Afghanistan and the devastation caused by their sacrifice affects so many lives in so many ways.  God bless you Nancy Grace.  You do a wonderful service to our country.

Below is the comments she made about Travis:
GRACE: Everyone, let`s stop and remember Navy Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Travis Youngblood, 26, Surrency, Georgia, killed Iraq. Awarded the Purple Heart, Navy Commendation, National Defense Service medal, Iraq Campaign medal. Buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Volunteered to serve in place of his wife so she could take care of their little boy. Loved his family, his country, being a father. Leaves behind heartbroken parents Deborah and Elmer, a Navy vet, brother E.J., widow Laura also served the Navy, son Hunter, daughter Emma he never got to meet.

Travis Youngblood, American hero.

Thanks to our guests but especially to you for being with us. I`ll see you tomorrow night. 8:00 sharp Eastern. And until then, good night, friend.

we do not do enough to hail these heroes an their families. It's our current political climate.
