    >The two Khmer soldiers that died are our heroes. They died for our motherland. We should do every thing we can to help and provide for their families. Their names should be held in the highest honor.

    >I hope that the family of the two dead soldiers are being cared for by the government. Many of our veterans have been neglected.
