Two more area families are acutely aware of the dangers U.S. troops are facing in Iraq — those grieving for Sgt. Jerry W. Mills Jr. of Arkansas City (in photo) and Sgt. Donald J. Hasse of Wichita Falls, Texas, whose mother lives in Wichita. Killed Tuesday when a roadside bomb detonated near their military vehicle in Taji, the soldiers have honored their country and communities with their service, which included two deployments in Iraq. Though no one can thank them enough, south-central Kansans should continue to try to support both the troops and the loved ones left behind.
