An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
The bodies of two US soldiers missing in Iraq for more than a year have been found, their families have told the Associated Press news agency.
Spc Alex Jimenez and Pte Byron Fouty were seized in an ambush in May 2007 in an area south of Baghdad.
The body of a third soldier, Pte Joseph Anzack Jr, was found in the Euphrates river a short time after the attack.
The Islamic State of Iraq, a group that includes al-Qaeda in Iraq, had released a video saying it killed all three men.
The parent’s of Spc Jimenez, 25, of Massachusetts, and Pte Fouty, 19, of Michigan, said uniformed military officials had visited their homes to inform them of their sons’ deaths.
The Pentagon usually waits 24 hours after notifying soldiers’ next of kin before making a public announcement.
Many prayers with the families of these fine young men.
