Father of Dead Soldier to Bush: “Get Our Boys & Girls Out of Iraq Now”

HeadlineFeb 12, 2004

And a New Jersey man Richard Dvorin has written an open letter to President Bush after his 24-year-old son Army Lt. Seth Dvorin died in Iraq earlier this month.

He wrote to President Bush:
“My son is gone just when he was laying a strong foundation to build upon for the rest of his life. Now, President Bush, his life has been snuffed out in a meaningless war. Where are all the weapons of mass destruction, where are the stock piles of chemical and biological weapons? Please President, pray for all our fallen heroes and as a tribute to these heroes get our boys and girls out of Iraq now, before too much more blood is shed. Since you waged this unnecessary war on Saddam Hussein the world has become a horrible place to live in. I know my boy is safe now, in a new world free of hate and prejudices where GOD is his president, but you tell me President Bush why he had to go so soon and in such a violent way.”

And that was the letter Richard Dvorin of New Jersey wrote to President Bush after his son Seth was killed in Iraq earlier this month.
