I don’t normally agree with Bill Richardson, but I do here (Aug. 21). It’s very unfortunate that these dedicated men lost their lives doing their job but it happens every day in some occupation. They took the job knowing the possible risks. Do we afford the families of our brave troops who lost their lives in their government service the advantages of hundreds of thousands of dollars plus lifetime payments for the families? I don’t think so. Their deaths were half way around the world and not near Prescott. They didn’t have the daily “hero” hype of the local press. I’m not diminishing the impact of their deaths but we need to put fairness in perspective. I think the media has provoked this claim for more money. We need to move on and consider ways this doesn’t happen again.
