Images from the Battle of Fallujah (lest we forget or take it for granted)
Yahoo News Photos ^ | 11/12/04

Posted on 11/12/2004 11:27:25 AM PST by Wolfstar

This thread honors the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces, and reminds us of why we here at home can go about our daily business in peace. Street-to-street is the toughest type of warfare. Air cover is being flown by pilots from the USS John F. Kennedy, as well as the U.S. Air Force from bases in the area.

I don't know the ping list for the FR USO Canteen or other Armed Forces ping lists. If you do, or if you know someone who does, they may be interested in this thread.

These men are the best in the world. How fortunate we are that we have them to defend us and spread freedom in a dark corner of this world.

God bless 'em!

Thanks WS. Our prayers for their success and safety.

BTW, it may be appropriate to post an email I received today from friends who live in the Central Valley of California:

Just had the sudden impulse to tell you that two marines killed recently in Iraq were best friends graduated from the high school Emily and Jason graduated from. They were honored today at their combined funerals.

It is so sad, I can't imagine what it must be like for their parents... but the young men really believed they were doing what they were suppose to do. They had volunteered to return to Iraq. Some veterans attended their funeral in support of their families and the men and women in Iraq.

The "boys" spoke last year in one of Emily's classes. Emily said that they would sneak off to see the Iraqi kids, and even one time sneaked out to have dinner with an Iraqi family. They wanted to know the people they were defending.

35,000 people went to our Veteran's Day parade today in Fresno. The local news said it is the largest in the nation!?!? I'm so impressed - when [we attended the parade] Jason years ago there were maybe several thousand.

Well, thank you for praying for this war and our President. God is supreme!!!

You're welcome. I think the story of the Battle of Fallujah is at least as important as the Peterson verdict. [/sarcasm, but never /scorn for media]

Is that a woman in combat, in the 4th pic from top?

I initially wondered that myself, but as far as I know, we have no women in actual combat units. Support units in theaters of combat, yes, but not actual fighting units. Remember that many of these troops are very young -- 18, 19 years old. Some young, boyish faces can appear somewhat feminine, especially when all we see are the features minus clues like hair, physical build, and so on.

To all who say thanks for posting this thread, you could not be more warmly welcome. But our Armed Forces are the ones who deserve all the thanks.

M2C, I'm so sorry about the two Marines from the Central Valley who were killed in Iraq. In a small way, this thread honors them and all our Marines, soldiers, Air Force and Navy pilots fighting at this very moment in Fallujah. God bless and keep them all.

Meg, do you know how to ping the FR USO canteen and/or Armed Forces ping lists? If not, do you know who might? I'd like to invite all to join us in this small, but heartfelt tribute.

Such young kids now becoming such brave men. I pray that we honor them a lot better than John "Jenjis Khaaan" Kerry did after Nam.

And those pictures of our men carrying off a fallen comrade makes me want to cry, and I don't cry.

Women in combat support positions don't bother me, but women in direct combat, do. I'm hoping it's just a youngish-faced man.
