An Ohio town never gave up hope that a young soldier abducted in Iraq almost four years ago would come back safely. Now it grieves after his remains are identified.
Batavia is the next community over from mine. I knew four years ago that Matt wasn’t coming back, but the Bush administration let the family hold onto hope for political reasons because the election was imminent. Is it a coincidence that now they find his remains? I am sad for his family. At least they don’t have to wonder any more.
