OUR NEIGHBORS AT WAR. Clintonville, Wisconsin resident Beth Karlson (not a known relative) met with President Bush last week during his trip to northern Wisconsin. Mrs Karlson's son Sgt. Warren Hansen died in a helicopter crash in Iraq. The Army has been less than forthcoming with information she'd very much like.
What she wants now is the Army investigative report. "I guess that I'm being stonewalled," she said before meeting Bush.
The President promises she'll get the report. The burden is also on the military to be forthcoming to the parents and children of the war dead both as a matter of decency and as a matter of credibility toward future volunteers.
