Saving Private Hubbard

Jason Hubbard, 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, United States Army, has gone home. That wouldn't be so significant if it wasn't for the fact that he used to have two brothers, one of them in the same unit.
Jason Hubbard, 33, will be re-united with his family in Clovis, California after his brother Nathan, 21, died in a helicopter crash in Iraq on Wednesday.

His other sibling Jared Hubbard was killed by a roadside bomb in 2004.

The "sole survivor" policy, which has allowed Jason to leave Iraq, formed the premise of movie Saving Private Ryan.
Moderate Man has more under the title Kristol Wants More Sacrifice.

With entire families being slaughtered by Bush's pursuit in Iraq, cheer led of course by slimy little chickenhawks like Bill Kristol, it becomes clear that some families are sacrificing a great deal more than others.
