A Tribute To Our Troops
With the recently launched offensive in Fallujah, very unfortunately, it looks like the U.S. body count in Iraq will rise significantly. In light of that, thought we should take another moment to remember those that have given their lives for our country and keep our thoughts and best wishes on those who are still at risk. Here's a link, courtesy of AofG regular (and Swamp giant) Bobby P., where you can learn a little about those we've already lost. As Bobby says, "See some of the faces and hear the stories. Puts things in perspective." Sure does. Thanks, Bob.
And be sure to check out this poem for Casey Austin Sheehan, a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq on April 4th, 2004 - "A Nation Rocked to Sleep" ~ written by his sister Carly. Moving stuff.
And finally, again, keep our young ones in your thoughts. Be well, soldiers. Be well.
