Father Of Fallen Soldier Defends Purpose Of War

Freddy Velez Freddy Velez

Washington Democrats are questioning President's Bush's decision to go to war. An NBC poll shows 57% of Americans think the President misled the country about the case to go to Iraq.

But, a Lubbock father who lost his son in Iraq, says he supports the President, our soldiers and veterans.

"We do this to give confidence to Veterans to know we recognize them, love them and support them, and we support our president and the war isn't over, let's fight and get finished," Roy Velez said.

Pictures of Velez's son, Freddy, were set up at the Latin Foursquare Gospel Church Sunday, exactly one year after Freddy was killed in Iraq. The pictures were part of an event to recognize all area soldiers and Veterans.
