From one who fights this war, I thank YOU for your sentiments and your post. We in the military know that the vast majority of the American people
support us in what we do. Its just too bad that there as so many morons on this board that have to take your post and twist it into a forum for their
twisted need to flame and jeer at people. Seems like most of them doing it were most likely bullied in school, so they are now trying to get back at
those that mistreated them in person by using the abject anonymous nature of the internet to do the same to you.
Nerdling, who just doesnt care about anything but himself and claiming that the left told us so, when in truth, they voted to go to Iraq
Illmatic67, an angry child who has ho clue what he is talking about because, like most here, hes never been there himself because that
MessedUpAnnie, who thinks its still about soldiers not have a choice. Wrong, we chose, and are proud of the choice.
heelstone, who thinks the threat of Muslim extremist terrorism is highly exaggerated. Tell that to all those whose love ones died on 9/11.
DipSchnit, who thinks we should go into semi-isolation. Yeah, that will make the rest of the world love us
.as they all starve to death and their
economies go in the tank
specialasianX, who wont fight for his country because he doesnt agree with the reasons for war
but he would if he was getting $9000.00 a week
THEREs a patriot for you
metalmessiah, who believes we are victims. No, we are soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines, fighting for the freedoms you all enjoy on a daily basis.
Fight so you will always have the right to come here and say whatever you feel. Do you think they have that right in China? How about Havana?
McGotti, who admonishes you for writing your feelings here, saying, In other words..... your wasting time and space by bringing that crap here...
calling it a hilarious letter of support.. that very few military personnel will hear. Well, he shows his stupidity in various ways, not the least
of which is how many he believes will see your OUTSTANDING message of support. Its already in Iraq, Oman, and a few other countries I will not name,
as I emailed it out to many friends. It is propagating rapidly, as do all such messages to our troops.
Satyr, who thinks we care nothing about our countrymen, only for ourselves. That we only do what we do because we are afraid to go to prison. Satyr
hasnt a clue. Wrong on every count, period. We ARE an all volunteer force, and we DO serve for our COUNTRY, and our COUNTRYMEN. He says, In the real
world, people don't really do things for you. They do things for themselves. Well, that just proves that satyr lives in his own selfish little world
where he does nothing for anyone else. He also says, I don't hate soldiers, nor do I care for them. What a hollow shell of a being, to not care for
your fellow man except when it suits your own selfish purposes. That is very sad
Um_Gazz, your letter and feelings are appreciated and are screaming their way around the world as I write this. Ignore the nay sayers, they have no
idea what they are talking about because, for the most part, they have never, and most likely will never, serve anything but their own selfish
