The War Comes Home

Those of you in the Philadelphia metropolitan area may have seen the reports of the two South Jersey soldiers killed in action early this week. We knew one of them, Greg Dalessio, who was a friend of our children. Greg was from a wonderful family, a half-brother in a family of eight children and the oldest.

We can only imagine his parents' grief. We all have lost a young man, 30, of excellent character. Greg had a Bachelor's degree from Seton Hall University as well as a Master's from the same school in international relations.

New Jersey also lost a fine state trooper in Dwayne Kelley, 48, of Willingboro. He was fluent in Arabic and worked with the trooper's antiterrorist unit.

Vaya con Dios, Gentlemen.
