Ohio Soldier Killed in Iraq had Become Disillusioned with War

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has a story about a Lorain County native who was killed in Iraq. According to the article, Sgt. Bruce Horner had become disillusioned because the Iraqis he was supposed to be training for police work had no idea what they were doing

The article quotes his parents, Edward and Betty, as follows:

“I have so much respect for the troops. I’m just opposed to the war. I don’t know why we’re over there.” She said her son also began to wonder.

“He was starting to get fed up,” Douglas Horner said. “He was starting to realize that no one really wanted us there anymore, even the people we were trying to help. We had worn out our welcome. He was becoming disillusioned.”
