Ready to deploy, reservist dies

April 11, 2003

A young soldier from the south suburbs died of a mysterious illness before she could fulfill her dream of serving her country on the front lines.

Rachael A. Lacy, a 22-year-old Army reservist from Lynwood, became ill more than a month ago after receiving several mandatory vaccinations--among them anthrax and smallpox--before her deployment to the Middle East. She died April 4.

"Rachael left home a healthy young woman, and she became sick shortly after she received her inoculations,'' said her father, Moses Lacy, who buried his daughter Wednesday in Lynwood.

***********************************************************

Can you believe this family would even CONSIDER vaccines as the cause? I can. It is no coincidence that my son's problems started within days after getting a round of vaccines, and it certainly is no coincidence in this soldier's case either. Or maybe she was just sick from fear of the unknown.

Obviously I don't know the details of her case so I couldn't really comment, but that is a sad story. I *will* say that it will be very interesting to see if "Gulf War Syndrome" happens again this time. I have no idea if it was caused by vaccines or warfare agents, a combination, or something else altogether; but I don't believe the problems experienced by some Gulf vets have been explained sufficiently. Do you know if the current crop of soldiers are getting the same vaccines soldiers received in 1991?

P.S. I see you are back to "suschi" -- did you give up "the cry-baby"?! I thought it was silly but still amusing. (of course, I'm easily amused, LOL!)

LOL, no, didn't give up the crybaby nic. Crybaby will come as go, as "crybaby" comes and goes ;)

I have no idea if the soldiers of today are getting the same shots as the soldiers in the past.

My father is sure that the barrage of shots he got for the army made him more susceptible to polio, but the polio shot wasn't around yet, so he got polio. He is still fighting for some type of compensation, as the connection took many years to come to light, or admittance.

I liked the crybaby nic too - it suits the person wearing it. Oh, that reminds me, I forgot to add that one to the list on the other board right in there with all the other wacky identity problems over there.

For all the bouncing between nicknames that you do? Pogo stick would be fitting as well. Now why do you bother reverting back to the crybaby now? LMAO!

I know what you *think* it means, but in reality, you chose the name crybaby for yourself and every time you use it, others will know you as the crybaby. It's obvious that you did not intend it this way but don't presume to think that I don't know what you are unsuccesfully "hinting" at. LOL!

"I know what you *think* it means,"

Now that is funny. You know what I think it means? A nic that I picked out?? Ha ha ha. I know exactly what it means Eve, because I chose the name.

In reality? This is just a message board Eve, may be your reality, but it's just a place to vent about the dangerous vaccines for me.

Yes, I know what you think it means - you stated so elsewhere. What you think and what is perceived by others are 2 entirely different matters. Are you suggesting that there are not "real" people on this board? LOL. It's a place for me to vent as well about the scaremongering and inaccurate/misleading information put forth by anti-vaxers.

Reading these posts am I to understand that you use this nic name "crybaby" because you ment for it to referr to another poster on this board? Cause when I first saw it I thought that it was a weird name to give yourself. I would hate to think that anyone would stoop so low as to call people names on any of these boards. We should be able to debate and or vent and talk without having to be teased like school children.

I certainly hope that you created this name for a more mature reason. Yet reading these posts I am starting to wonder. If I am wrong please forgive me I am just taking it for what is being put out there.

Happy debating and keep it somewhat nice lol
