    thank you for the prayers

    I just wanted to thank everyone for their prayers. I recently returned from a combat deployment in Afghanistan, and many here sent their prayers for my fellow Marines and I. And we had a guardian angel with us, no other reason I can explain some of the things that happened. So, sincerely, thank you for your prayers and support

    Welcome home, thank you, and Semper Fi.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Thanks Opfor, nothing better than coming home from combat. Of course you know that, like all grunts do.

    I dunno, I last about 4 or 5 months tops before I start missing it. Not all of it, certainly, but you know what I mean...

    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.
