Father of fallen Marine is upset by the form letter he received from Obama
A man who lost a son to the war in Afghanistan is disappointed in the condolence letter he received from Barack Obama. Tom Logan, a Willis resident, calls the note late, impersonal, disrespectful and essentially a form letter. Logan’s son, USMC Cpl. Joseph D. Logan, was killed Jan. 19, 2012, along with five other men when the helicopter they were in crashed. Joey Logan was 22. “It opened up a wound in our heart you can’t fix. You can’t send another letter. You can’t make it right,” Logan said. “He would have been more mad about this than I am,” Tom Logan said. Tom Logan said he believes Obama did little more than sign his name to the document. He believes his son deserved more. “Different presidents have approached the task in ways that are unique with their personalities and their priorities. George W. Bush, wrote more personal, individualized, sometimes hand-written notes to the families of soldiers. Tom Logan asks ? “Where are the representatives of our government? Where is the honor and the respect that all of these soldiers deserve?” Logan asked.
