Troop families go to Iraq on peace mission
The leader of the 10-member group, Fernando Suarez del Solar, said it is important for Iraqis to realize that not all Americans support the U.S. military presence in Iraq. His son, Marine Lance Cpl. Jesus Suarez del Solar, 20, was killed in Iraq eight months ago when he stepped on an unexploded American cluster bomb.
Suarez spoke at an ANSWER rally on Sep 28 in LA and said the military lied to him at first about the cause of his son’s death, something he understandably found to be contemptible.
