    I Fought For You

    Ran across this tonight and wanted to share.

    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.
