'This is the only son I had'
Marine Staff Sgt. Kendall Waters-Bey, 29, was killed today in a helicopter crash. A Baltimore TV station broke the news and had a chance to interview the family.
It's sad that this war is going on and that we have to lose so many people over nothing. I can't bring my brother back, but I really miss him," one of the victim's sisters said. As he held a picture of his son, Waters-Bey's father, Michael, said: "I want President Bush to get a good look at this, really good look here. This is the only son I had, only son."
He then walked away in tears, with his family behind him. Kenneth, the Marine's only son, was with the family. So sad, so very sad.
