Few Media Reports of Twelve U.S. Marine Deaths in October 2011

HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) – The media pummels us with word of Lindsay Lohan’s latest jail sentence while in the political world, journ

alists chase Cain’s past.  Among these stories of celebrity and political maneuvering comes word that twelve U.S. Marine “heroes” paid the ultimate price in October 2011.

Those heroes were:

Lance Cpl. Benjamin Schmidt, 24
Justin Allen  23,
Brett Linley 29,
Matthew Weikert 29,
Justus Bartett 27,
Dave  Santos 21,
Jesse Reed 26,
Matthew Johnson 21,
Zachary Fisher  24,
Brandon King 23,
Christopher Goeke 23, and
Sheldon Tate  27..........

Ironically, headlines blare from nearly all media outlets about the first two stories. The names of the U.S. Marine heroes came not in a press release, but as a “respectful” forward on from a friend on e-mail.
