Army Reservists visit Sunflower students

Students at Sunflower Elementary got a visit from soldiers who are soon deploying to Iraq. Enlarge video

Seven Iraq-bound soldiers paid a visit to students at Sunflower School on Friday.

The Army Reservists from the 538th Transportation Company Detachment, which is training at Fort Riley, talked to second- and sixth-graders about what it means to be deployed.

"We all come together to do one thing, and that is to serve in the military, and you're the reason we do that," said 2nd Lt. John Barbee, who has two children, Sanders and John, at Sunflower.

Several of the soldiers have served in Iraq or Afghanistan and gave the students some insight into what those places are like.

"If you thought snowstorms were bad, you should see a sandstorm," said Spc. Paul Fancy, who has served in Kuwait and Afghanistan.

The soldiers, who will deliver supplies to troops in the field, listened to the young students as they shared some of their own tales of loved ones who have served in the wars.

Barbee said it can be difficult to talk to children about war.

"Sometimes as grown-ups, we don't even understand it," he said. "What they (kids) see on CNN or a blurb in the newspaper is all they get, but as long as they understand that we volunteer to do what we do there - and we like doing what we do."

Phyllis Buchele, a school librarian, said it was valuable for the kids to see soldiers up close and personal, rather than on the news.

"These are soldiers, but they have regular jobs. That gives the kids a personal connection to the soldiers," she said.

Barbee said he hopes the students will send letters to the troops while they are on their yearlong deployment.

"That really does keep us motivated and keeps us going to do what we do," he said. "Sometimes it does get hard."

tunahelper, I have heard this neoconservative propaganda that you are spewing many times before. No matter how many times you say it won't make it true. Also you shouldn't make the mistake of placing all antiwar people in the liberal camp. I just may be more conservative than you are.

I spent 5 years in the Marine Corps so I have no problem with the military. However, I do have to wonder what was the academic neccissity of this visit for 2nd graders who are usually 7 years old.I'm not really sure what they will take away from this encounter considering at 7, they are only just developing their critical thinking skills and learning the difference betweeen fantasy and reality and other abstract ideas.I suppose I could get behind this more if we lived closer to a military base and thus had more children whose parents were actually in the service and service over in Iraq or Afghanistan. I could see the value in this if it was a way to alliveate anxiety in the children whose parents are serving.As for the 6th graders, other than I question the academic need for this kind of visit, I don't think it did any damage. The boys probably thought it was "cool." However, in the future, I think these types of visits should be left to the older grades where the students can understand the significance of what the soldiers are saying.Dena

Domino. What media crap am I buying? George W himself has admitted that there was no terrorist link between Iraq and the attacks on this country. I do respect soldiers who have the moral integrity to be faithful to their oath to support and uphold the constitution. Sadly there are too few of them. If more were faithful we wouldn't be able to wage unconstitutional wars. That is why I stated correctly that those who ignore their oath to fight in these wars are not fighting for Joe Americans freedom. They are fighting for a government that has no problems trampling on the constitution. If it sounds nasty to you. Too bad. I love this country but I strongly disagree with our government leaders blatant disregard for our constitution that was designed to limit governments abuse of power. More people need to wake up to the fact that our federal government is more of a threat to individual liberty than the terrorists the troops are "saving" us from.

Ralph, you appear to be someone to be honored and respected. Thank you for your service. Hope you are not a recruiter.I didn't join but was heavily recruited, due to ASVAB scores. The recruiter kept staring at my chest, and at that time, my chest was full of glory. I am not stupid. Actions speak much louder than words. So, thanks for the heart but it is unnecessary. I don't want to mislead you.No, I still believe that those AF soldiers, who assisted to ship nukes illegally, got their orders from ones much higher than those who were punished. But that is the current nature of the armed forces, isn't it? And it is indeed the nature of the shadow government Bush touts as being in place.What about those poor Ft. Bragg soldiers? Got a counter on that one?I will request that my child be omitted from any presentations by the military. I would far rather he design and build those weapons you use than actually aim them at people and places.And yes, I am sure you would like to know who I am. But so far, we still have some battered semblance of the right to privacy. I hope. Sunflower readily assures me we do. But word gets around. I am sure there are some who know.

*Finally, read the article. The soldiers spoke to the 2nd and 6th grade students. Lt Barbee has children in the 2nd and 6th grades and Sunflower. Who's to say his kids didn't ask him to come speak? Further, they would not have been at the school without first having received permission from the school.A note to those who say they don't want their children exposed to the military in school. You have the right to ask that your child be kept from such "exposure," and the school will make every attempt to comply. The same goes if you don't want your child to be exposed to the teaching of evolution or the teaching of intelligent design (creationism) in science classrooms.*****I'm me.

And then no one wants to address the strange pseudo-religious possessions that has overcome our armed forces. Why is that? The Air Force is in huge trouble with Gates and no one wants to talk about that.Some faction within the Air Force want to make their arm of military forces a religious crusade. With only 11% of the US population evangelical, that is going to be a really tough endeavor.Military recruiters are desperate, there is no doubt about it. No one is enlisting but the illegals. That is what happens when you use a phrase "Army of One." (LOL, self-fulfilling prophesy) and lie to your recruits, and make promises you simply will not, cannot keep, and don't allow people to come home when their contract is up, and when you don't report all the fatalities that occur, and repress complaints of sexual abuse within your forces, and when soldiers murder their wives and selves, and when you continue to give anthrax vaccinations that cause some to have mental disorders despite evidence that it is an extremely harmful vaccination, and .... Surely you don't want me to continue to list all the uglies about the armed forces?

I refuse the brainwash.AND yes, I will endoctrinate my child as I see fit. I am indeed the one who loves, who nurtures, who feeds, who clothes, who nurses, who cares, who cried for their pain. It is my job to endoctrinate, not the armed forces.Do you feel so small that you insist others put you on a pedestal because you served?I honor WWI and WWII vets, the drafted Vets, but other than that, all the rest of you are equal to all others in society, no higher, no lower.

"Such as the choice to get their brains blown out?"Let's see, in the recent past, boohoozo criticized the poor man who was struck by the bus on his moped saying he should have been riding on the bus instead (and expressed gratitude that no one on the bus was hurt), that parents of children with disabilities should be excluded from positions of responsibility outside the home, and now he denigrates those who have chosen to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Boohoozo, why don't you load up your bus with the rest of the slime cowering under their beds hoping someone else will protect them (while insulting them for doing so) and go somewhere that appreciates your mindless drivel?

You're right, Bozo (real name?) I should have called you what you are, a spoiled American who thinks freedom is free. An uninformed citizen who thinks the whole world is our friend and that militaries are not necessary. You sound like an elitist, so perhaps you have a history book, or two, around the loft. If so, referrence the fact that every free society only became free by force and it remains free because its citizens remain willing to die to keep their freedom. Don't worry Bozo, our Army reservists and our active forces will continue to fight for your right to say whatever you want to, whenever you want to say it. They leave the rhetoric to unarmed "Bozos" like you and me. (I am sorry that you thought the previous insult was a "schoolyard taunt", your school must have had a REALLY boring schoolyard.)

gogoplata - I think it is sad that there are still so many people who buy into all the media crap like you apparently do. The service you are "not at all grateful for" includes your right to get online and post nasty, hateful comments from the privacy of your home - you will not be found out, you will not be persicuted for your beliefs because of those who you say are not serving you. In fact, you have the right to go spout your opinions, which in my opinion is assinine, from any street corner you want! You will not be thrown in jail or members of your family tortured or killed because of your beliefs. You are entitled to your beliefs, just as I am, and I believe you are an idiot!

OMG!!! I can't even begin to express how much some of the comments pi$$ me off - especially those from "notnowdear"! Let me start by saying that just because you don't support the war doesn't mean you can't support the troops!!! The armed forces did not "take" or "steal" these young men and women who are serving our country - every single one of them who is over there right now VOLUNTEERED!!!!! There is no draft and no one forced them to go prior to their volunteering!!! They knew when they signed up that there was a chance this would happen and if they choose to ignore the possibility, that is their responsibility, not the governments! Too often, people don't stop and think that these soldiers VOLUNTEERED - there is no draft - there is no forcing them to join the military at this point in time. Maybe you need to take some time and find a soldier who was drafted, and sent to spend a year or more in Vietman. And yes, they were drafted - they didn't volunteer - and they did not run and hide in Canada as many did. They watched their commrads die, saw things young men should never have to see and yes, they killed. War sucks!!! notnow - if you have so much contempt and disdain for our country, why don't you pack your bags and take your happy a$$ to Canada or Mexico or somewhere else where you would not have to associate with what you call "bottom feeders" - many of us would be happy to have you gone. I can only assume your children are small and not yet to an age where they might decide to join the military. I wonder what will happen if that day ever comes? Will you disown them and call them "bottom feeders"? How will you feel about people who would call your child by names like that? None of us raise our children hoping they will go into the military and be killed in a war. But neither do we hope they will die by any means!! I still have one child who would be prime age if they would reinstate the draft. I pray that will never happen, but if it does, I'm sure he would go and serve his country just as his father, who by the way was drafted and sent to Vietnam, did! I'm equally as sure I would spend many sleepless night and cry buckets of tears. I would like nothing more than to have every single young man/woman who is overseas right now come home safely, but until they do, I will pray for them.

The soldiers, some of them, are as noble as the rest of us. BUT they don't decide the agenda. God knows who does decide waar agendas, but whoever it is does not have parental love for the soldier, which makes them less important than the parent who does indeed love their child.And you have to question people who turn over their lives so that everything can be decided for them and that, in being a soldier, their American rights thus are greatly reduced. I hardly think a person can fight for freedoms they do not themselves have.Let's not white-wash what it means to be a soldier.

And that there are those of us who sincerely hope children of parents like notnowdear benefit from your positive example instead of being locked away to become good little socialists. Please watch out for yourselves and all of you come home safe. Thank you for all you do, over there and over here, too.

You don't need to agree with the anarchists' political viewpoints, or the ways they express them, to at least recognize that in this country you used to be able to hold dissenting views from those of the government. Shouldn't the kids at least be informed of what rights they might have had?But I guess BG confirms that, at least in his opinion, the purpose of the soldiers' visit was to indoctrinate, not to educate.

Yep- begin the indocteration.....FORT RILEY - A Fort Riley soldier has been identified as responsible for making a threatening cell phone call to an atheist soldier who is suing the government over religious freedom.Officials declined to identify the soldier by name. But they sayhe is in the same 97th Military Police Battalion as Private FirstClass Jeremy Hall, who received the call. The message was lacedwith obscenities and a racial slur and directed at Hall, his wifeand family.Lieutenant Colonel David L. Chase, the unit's commander, saysthe soldier was intoxicated when he made the call.
