Debbie Lee, whose son Marc was the first Navy SEAL casualty in Ramadi, Iraq, wrote an open letter to Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, castigating him for his April 16 remarks on the strategic value of the city, and that its loss to the Islamic State — whose militants are attempting to take the city — would not be symbolic in any way.


“You and this administration have minimized that Ramadi could fall, now you are minimizing that it is falling, but you Sir WILL NOT minimize the sacrifice my son Marc Lee made or any of our brave warriors!” Lee wrote in her open letter that was published on Fox News.
