Video honors soldiers not war



LIBERTY Township - Sean Sinerius doesn't care if his classmates at Lakota East High School are for the war in Iraq or against it.

His goal in making a 10-minute video to kick off the school's Wall of Honor project is simple: to honor and support those in the military.

"It doesn't matter - our troops are there, regardless of anyone's position,'' said Sinerius, 18, whose brother Chris is in the air force and could be called to Iraq. "I'm against war, but I support the troops.''

Students, parents, teachers or community members who have a family member called up to active duty are asked to bring a photo of the individual for the wall along with his or her address for letters or E-mails.

The pictures and information will be put up on a designated wall along Main Street.
