Please dont take this the wrong way, but dont you think that maybe the military is being used unjustly by our government?

He was my Friend...

He was a brave and patriotic man....

In regards to my friend, I could care less about your question.

I served, saw combat and I am a better man for it.

He was a good man.

Semper,

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your friend.

What a wonderful tribute to some one who you obviously thought highly of.

For what it is worth I'm sure he's watching over you from heaven.

Rest assured that DevilDog is in a better place now.

This article, while about a different marine, may help.

If anyone can get through it and have dry eyes at the end, you are a better man than I am.

What a moving story and tribute to a brave young man. Thanks for sharing and for the record my eyes aren't dry right now.

The death of a friend is no place for what we may or may not think of this war. There's other thread for that.


My condolences to you, Semper.
Thanks for sharing the tribute


And, Slackerwire, thats for shaing your article.

WOW

Thank you for sharing that...

For it is in the mourning that we learn to move on...

I understood this when I lost friends in Lebanon and Panama and now in Iraq, but every once in awhile it is necessary to receive a reminder...

Again,

Thank you

Semper

Thank you for sharing your tribute with us all. My sympathy goes out to you and all of us who have lost loved ones and friends over the years. It is heart warming to know our heros are not forgotten and are mourned by so many. We should all take time daily to remember those that have given their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Over the past sixty years I have lost so many friends and family to the cause. I am proud to have know each of them, and am eternally grateful for their service to the USA.

And shame on anyone that would take that away from us that mourn to add their political bashing on such a fine thread.

Semper.

All my condolences...it's tough to lose a freind especially so suddenly. I've lost far too many myself recently...

As my sister said, he's there watching over you.

Again, all my condolences.

Thank you for that, friend. My brother is on the ground in Iraq, or will be shortly, and if, God forbid, the worst should happen, I'm glad there will be someone just like that Marine Colonel to bring him home safely.

I suppose I knew that already, but heart and mind don't always communicate as well as they should.

Thanks again for posting that.

Seagull,

Your Brother is in my prayers each and every night for his safe return and his service to our nation...

Semper,

I appreciate your prayers for my brother. It's hard on all of us who have loved ones in harm's way. I pray that all our troops come home soon.

Slackerwire,

I echo my brother Seagull's hope that if God forbid something happen to our brother that some one like that Marine brings him home to us with the same amount of care and compassion.

Sorry about your friend. Seagull, may your brother walk in safety.

Thanks for that, Jso. As we speak, he's on the ground as a convoy escort driver. I pray not only for his safety, but that he isn't forced to kill anyone in defence of himself and his squadmates.

On behalf on my family thanks for those good thoughts about my baby brother. As Seagull said he is on the ground now and has been there for 3 weeks with many more to go. He was promoted from gun truck driver to the commander of the truck. His truck is the first one in the convoy which I'm told is because he's been there before and the hope is that he will recognize dangers better then those who haven't.

Semper, once again thanks for this tribute and thanks for sharing something that so obviously means so much. You do us all great honor by allowing us to honor your friend.
