God’s Speed! Please let everyone know just how much the people back in “The World” become more resolute in our support to you and hopefully soon we can get the ROE’s changed. Hooah! God bless you all!

What do current active duty soldiers think about Sherif Joe Arpaio and his evidence that obama is a fraud?

My thoughts, prayers, respect, and love are with all involved. You doing OK?

My brother-in-law is supposed to go over there in mid-August. Was a navy officer/pilot for a lot of years, doing sub patrols off the coast of Iceland. He’s in the reserves now and they decided to call him up for a year in Afghanistan. My sister is thinking it’ll just be a desk job but I don’t know if anywhere is actually safe over there.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

A friend of mine has done spec ops in various places including Iraq and has seen a lot of the Middle and Far East. He actually spoke to our church about what he saw. One of the things he said is that a lot of places lack basic sanitation and they smell really bad.

I looked at the pics in your profile; looks like you’ve got a lot to look forward to when you come home. I really hope we can keep America the land of the free and the home of the brave. I don’t want this country to be “radically transformed” into just another world stinkhole.

We’re half a world apart but fighting the same war. Please let the guys over there know we’re fighting alongside them, just in a different theater.

Thanks everyone. Sorry I couldn’t get back soner but I left on a mission the following morning after posting this. I just now got to stop at another FOB and got a chance to pop in and check out the posts. I’ll get back to it when I get back to my main post.
