    My 4th Of July Salute To Our Troops

    Earlier today, I was watching video clips of USMC combat operations in Afghanistan on FOX News. I was struck by the fact these Marines were fighting and marching with full rucks, with full loads of ammo, water and rations and their personal gear, all in 100 degree heat, no less. I don't know how they do it. The Marine Corps' physical conditioning program must be brutal!

    My hat is off to these men. (This from an ex-Army guy.) Even on my best day in my far distant youth, I couldn't hump half the gear these Devil Dogs were carrying.

    So please join me in a salute to the U.S. Armed Forces, the finest in the world!

    Come home safe.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I consider it an honor to join you in saluting them. They deserve it.
    For those who understand, no explanation is necessary.

    +1 Well said!! God Bless America and those who defend her...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
