2 Local Marines from Palatine and Glenbard South High in IL killed in Afghanistan

Rest in peace men and we thank you and your families for the immeasurable sacrifices you all make on our country's behalf each day. A simple thank you just doesn't quite 'cut it'.

God Bless you all.

Daily Herald | Marine from Palatine killed in Afghanistan: "A kind, considerate and hardworking Marine from Palatine who dreamed of a career in the military has been killed in action in Afghanistan.

Christopher 'C.J.' Boyd, 22, a 2006 graduate of Palatine High School, became the second suburban native this week to die in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Boyd and the other Marine, Kevin E. Oratowski of Wheaton, were based at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Boyd, who lived in California with his wife and twin boys, was killed by a roadside bomb while on foot patrol in combat against enemy forces Thursday, according to the Marines.
Palatine High School's Pirates flag was lowered to half-staff Friday afternoon. Boyd's parents left their Palatine home Friday for Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to claim their son's body.

Boyd was a rifleman assigned to 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force. First Lt. Ken Kunze, a Marines spokesman at Camp Pendleton, said it was Boyd's first combat deployment.

Kunze said the losses are difficult for the commanders in Afghanistan.

Here's the second Marine and he's from Glenbard South which is also in the immediate area so it's been a tough week around the are for Illinois soldiers and again we pray for they, their families and loved ones. Especially while their 'comrades in arms' in Iraq are finally being sent home victorious as we talked about the other day here.

Glenbard South, Palatine high schools mourn Marines killed in Afghanistan - chicagotribune.com: "Two Chicago-area high schools lowered their school flags to half-staff on Friday in honor of 2005 graduates killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan.

Lance Cpl. Kevin Oratowski, 23, died Wednesday in an explosion while conducting mounted combat operations against enemy forces in Helmand Province, according to the Department of Defense.

A 2005 graduate of Glenbard South High School, Oratowski was assigned to the 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Pendleton, Calif., officials said. read more...

Both these men here are from townships nearby the one I presently live in here in the Northwest Chicago suburbs, and the first man went to a high school which about 15 years ago my backyard actually 'butted up to' in Palatine Il., naturally named Palatine High School.

I btw went to Hersey high here in Arlington Heights in district 214 graduating 83, while Palatine High is in district 211, which is in a rival township and district for you folks not in the Chicago area, and both are great school systems in all realms be it athletically or scholastically, anyone from here will tell you.

However, Glenbard South High is in the south suburbs in a town called Glenn Elyn in Glenbard district 87, although it too is also a great school district, none of which are to be confused with the failing Chicago Public Schools in the city 'proper' which have been decimated my minorities and illegals in most sections south and west in the city over the past 3 decades under liberal rule.

Both late Marines were lost in the past couple days, and we pray both men rest in peace, with prayers going out to their grieving families and friends, right along with all the other soldiers fighting in Afghanistan who are now sadly under the command of Slumdog Obama and have been for almost 2 years now.

For that alone I and hundreds of millions weep for them all daily, praying for their safe return sooner than later alive and in once piece.


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
