Here’s an email I received from Iraq. Since I’ve gone through this grind myself, I know what it is to be out there. But as they say, when the
going gets tough, the tough get going! And whichever country we’re from, we are all brothers in arms – fighting for freedom and peace…..
YES! It’s like that! Count your blessings, pray for them.
"And the next time when….
The other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,
Or you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,
Or you're served slightly cold food at the restaurant,
Or you're sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,
Or the shower runs out of hot water,
Or when the Hawaiian Pizza arrives a few minutes late,
Or the air conditioner in your bedroom goes on the blink,
Think of them...
The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine
Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is by taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel.
It would be awesome if you could find a way to share this with our fellow countrymen to let the world know that 'WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN' and to let
the folks back home remember why we’re here and that we remember those who've been lost.
Proud to serve our country!
