Sheehan Family Statement:
The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.
Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
My deepest condolences to Mrs. Sheehan and to all of Soldier Sheehan's relatives and friends. While the actions in Iraq are worth it to the US, some families pay a much higher price than others. For the Sheehan family, Iraq was not worth it for them. It is one of the sad aspects of war, the cost in human lives. Not going to war does not gaurantee saving lives. We were not at war on Sept 11th, and who knows what the death toll from further terrorist attacks would have been by now had we done nothing. This is why Soldier Sheehan's sacrifice is so important.
