Looking back at a year of war

Today's Ithaca Journal looks back over the year of war in Iraq, featuring two stories with a Dryden perspective. The easier of the two to read, "Bush's Iraq policy finds support in Tompkins County", includes comments from Dryden resident Richard Jorgenson and Freeville resident Charlie Hart, both supporting the war.

The more difficult article - actually one of the most difficult articles I've seen in the Journal - talks to the parents of Air Force Staff Sergeant Patrick Griffin Jr., who grew up in Dryden, was killed in an ordnance explosion near Diwaniyah, Iraq, and is buried in Willow Glen cemetary.
