John Murtha has died due to complications from gallbaldder surgery.

I was never a fan of his pork spending and sweet deals for local military contractors, but I never wanted him out of office this way. As with Kennedy I wanted them defeated in the war of ideas and not out of our lives forever.

I wish his family the best and will not say anything bad about him today, this is not a time of debate or politics.

RIP Marine Semper Fi
