Casey Sheehan's grave

In the interests of fairness -- I do attempt to be a gentleman occasionally -- I must point out that the grave of Casey Sheehan now has a proper headstone.

Of course, as with anything involving Mama Moonbat, there was much weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth (in front of the cameras) and bald-faced lies before this got accomplished.

SPC Sheehan fell in battle on Palm Sunday, April 4, 2004.

American soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment were ambushed and pinned down in the fierce fighting of Sadr City. Unable to exfil, and being cut to pieces, the unit called for a rescue.

Casey Sheehan volunteered for the Quick Reaction Force put together for that rescue. Eight men died on that rescue mission, Casey Sheehan among them. They went down fighting.

In April of 2006 -- two years later -- with her allies and accomplices getting a minor case of the heebie-jeebies regarding the un-marked grave, Cindy Sheehan attempted to explain to the Media why she had left the grave unmarked.

She blamed it on the Government and the owner of the mortuary, Steve Nadeau.

Of course. It's always someone elses fault, she's always the innocent victim, yackety, yackety, yackety...

Mr. Nadeau fired back, explaining on national TeeVee that he -- himself -- had absorbed all costs of Casey Sheehan's funeral that weren't covered by the military and other private citizens.

On 25 May, 2006, not haivng any other choice, Mama Moonbat finally put a headstone on the grave of her warrior son, and issued this statement:

"It is important for the rest of Casey's family to have one, I guess the pain of seeing it etched in marble that he is dead is another pain I will have to deal with."

It's always about her, isn't it?

Anyhoo, she further stated that the headstone was "very expensive" and that the "government should have paid for it because of its responsibility for his death."

All you had to do was ask, you stupid daft cow:

"The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a government headstone or marker for the grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world."

Took me all of 3 seconds on Google to find that.

But, what is one more lie from Cindy Sheehan compared to the thousands she's already told?

So. The final resting place of Casey Sheehan has been marked. It just took two years, as much publicity as could be wrung out of the process, and a couple of brazen lies to get it done.

Thanks, LawDog. I have corrected my own blog to reflect the new information that has been deposited into my brain.

The woman should still be drawn and quartered.

Sick just effing sick. I wonder what kind of mother she really was to be so frigging self absorbed and self importqant to use every aspect of her sons death for self promotion.

Excuse me while I go throw up.

About a month ago - I can't remember where I originally saw this - I came across a post based on a newspaper article, that claimed that it was actually Cindy Sheehan's estranged husband and the family who put the marker on Casey's grave, not Cindy herself.

In any event, the grave was certainly unmarked as of last spring, when Sheehan posed on her son's grave for a Vanity Fair cover shot with a broad, toothy grin on her face.

Which tells you all you need to know about Cindy Sheehan right there...

I have to wonder as well why Casey's father or siblings didn't have the marker supplied and placed.

Cindy moonbat needs to be ignored at every opportunity!

My mistake. The news about him getting a gravestone was covered little compared to the rest of what news Cindy Sheehan gets, so of course I wouldn't as easily remember mention of Casey getting a gravestone as I would his mother's latest attempts at getting attention.
And my Google-fu is weak and my time is limited, so often I might be guilty in not fact-checking myself.

Still, nearly 2 years to get a stone?

I believe that "mother" Sheehan has a special place in hell awaiting her. Apparently she is the exact opposite of the son she uses to further her own agenda, fame.

miiiThe other moonbats who (unironically) called her Mother Courage nailed it. Google "Mother Courage," if you don't already know the reference.

Oh my goodness, Mother Courage is about the best name possible for that woman. And you say that "her people" nicknamed her that?! I wonder if they realize what they've done?
