R.I.P. Army Spc. Adriana Salem

Last Friday Army Specialist Adriana Salem from Elk Grove Village Illinois was killed in Iraq. The offical story the Army released to the news is that the vehicle she was riding in "rolled over" killing her. She had only been in Iraq for 20 days.
Adriana was 20 years old. She joined the military shortly after 9/11.
Earlier this week an officer from the Army was joined by a man from the government. They asked Adriana's family not to talk about this "incident" to the press. They refused to give her grieving father the details on exactly what happened. They claim that the military is still investigating.
It is standard for the military to send officers to the homes of the deceased's family. However why was her family also visited by a governmental offical (who was clearly not part of the military?) Why would they forbid her grieving family to talk about this to the press? Why did they refuse to answer her father's requests for information on how his daughter was killed?
When her father tried to ask them about this all they would tell him is that his daughter's death is still being investigated and that it is a "sensitive" matter.

    As one of Adriana's best friends, i have to correct something for you- she was not 20, she was 21. She was one of the most amazing friend that anyone could ask for.

    Yes...I wish you would all quit writting about things when you don't even have all or the correct info.
    Her father would have been the last person she would have wanted to know anything! Her REAL family was able to talk to the media!!!

    As someone that served with adriana, i think that she would just like to be known as the hard working soldier and outstanding civilian that she was, and just that. Whatever happened to her over there should be left for her family to know. She served her country proudly every day, as a soldier and a civilian. RIP Adriana.

    Hi everybody,
    today is another full of challenges day. This afternoon it started all extremely fast, my boy was a little ill and was awake earlier than a normal day. After that I have got to find a new template for my website, but then I realized it was more efficient to search for a cart ecommerce shopping system . The rest of my day is passing pretty good and the works are going fast, I bet that this evening I can aftre so long go to play f
    ootball. I really need to keep my body in shape a little bit.
    Bye Bye
    Gary
