CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (March 2, 2006) Karla Comfort received a lot of looks and even some salutes from people when she drove from Benton, Arkansas to Camp Pendleton, California in her newly-painted, custom Hummer H3 March 2. The vehicle is adorned with the likeness of her son, 20-year-old Lance Cpl. John M. Holmason, and nine other Marines with F Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division who where all killed by the same improvised explosive device blast in Fallujah, Iraq, in December 2005.

This ‘Letter of Apology’ was written by Lieutenant General Chuck Pitman, US Marine Corps, Retired:
#I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth; it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia , Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait , etc.)
# I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after 9/11.
