Photo of the Day!

Little Soldier Girl "Didn't Want to Let Go"

Four-year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn't want her daddy to go to Iraq.

So much so, that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn't let go.

No one had the heart to pull her away.

Redmond, over at Bob Cesca's Awesome Blog! Go!, said: "Explain No-Bid Contracts to Her."

Or, how's about The Bush Grindhouse's cruel Stop-Loss Policy for his criminal lies to invade and occupy a country so his NeoNitWit cronies can get boners over America's Might?

Let's hope we see another picture of little Paige Bennethum, wrapped in her daddy's arms, upon his safe return.

  • I witnessed a scene like that several years ago. Hunter AFB near Savannah Georgia. My own daughter I was seeing off. And the thousands of families ... wives, parents, children ... gathered there to see their loved ones go to war, not knowing whether or not they would return.

    One forgets about painful moments like those ... until a photo recalls the mind.
