My heart and prayers are with all of you. I am thankful for the sacrifices so that others maybe safe. I am praying for a swift and decisive victory so that all can return. The sacrifice of those that paid the ultimate price will be not forgotten in my household during this Christmas season. May their families feel the comfort that they need during this Christmas season. We are at war with the forces of evil and we will prevail.

Wow! Thanks for the picture from the Hell, and for cleaning the scum! Wonder when MSM would read this letter to rest of the America.

Jerk sKerry was trying to tell us to negotiate with MuSlimes!

God Bless you guys and President Bush, the crushing fist is the only thing MuSlimes will understand! They screw with America, they will get wiped out! I hope more info will come out from the seized records.

As our Sergeant Major said, "going up against tanks and brads with an AK-47, you have to admire their effort!" Over the next 5 days, the Marines and our Task Force killed over 1,000 more insurgents.

In 1996 Osama said the American soldier had grown soft. Thank you, Mike and all U.S. military, for proving him wrong.

I love this part: "The plan was to make sure the insurgents would either surrender or fight and be killed."

I hate this part: "From that attack, we lost one soldier and 4 more were wounded."

Gary Owen bump from a retired 3/7 CAV officer.
The battle of Fallujah will add more glory to a regiment with a long and honorable history.
Words cannot describe how proud we old-timers are of the fine job our troopers are doing.

Gary Owen!

Infantry/Marine! What a letter to your friends - everywhere! I'm passing it on. Want to see your photos.
RE: drug find, drugged-up 'insusrgents.'This is nothing new. The Arabs have always been in conflict with neighboring peoples. Centuries ago, the sheik married all the likely girls himself, leaving the poor, unmarried man with no prospects and nothing to do. The very word assassin comes from the Arabic hashishim. Drug 'em up and send 'em off to kill and die, promise 'em 72 virgins in paradise, get rid of any unsurrection or competition.

Now that it's over, there is a lot of things that people back home should know. First of all, every citizen of Fallujah (non-insurgent) is getting $2,500 USD (that's a lot over here) to fix up their house or buy new things that may have been destroyed in the fighting. Insurgents took up positions in resident's houses so we were forced to destroy a lot of buildings. There is over $100 million dollars ready to be spent to re-build the city.

Time to build a 'Home Depot' in Fallujah...(and maybe a Wal-Mart Super Center...)

To all: I have a contact in Sadr City (a captain) and asked if I could give him a subscription to something that he could read, and share with his men, like Sports Illustrated, "Mad," Or a particular comic book. (Hey, I know these guys aren't dumb, but sometimes you just want to get your mind out of the real world). Anyway, he said a subscription to SI would be much appreciated, as they guys like keeping up with the sports back home. So that's what he (and his men) get for Christmas from our family.

You might consider a subscription as a gift. Last year, I donated all the remainder of my Marvel comic collection to "gift bags" going over to Iraq. I'm sure these guys get lots of soap and "handi-wipes," but let's think about their entertainment/emotional well being, too.

Thanks! You guys have the support of every true American, (about 61 million).

... came across the dead bodies of fighters from Chechnya, Syria, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Afghanistan, and so on -- no, this was not just a city of pissed off Iraqis, mad at the Coalition for forcing Saddam out of power. It was a city full of people from all over the Middle East whose sole mission in life was to kill Americans.

What the protesters don't understand or believe is that either you guys stop them over there, or we will be fighting them on our doorsteps here, literally. Even so, we may have to fight thousands of sleepers here.

I live in Central New York State and the Amsterdam Police Department asked folks to donate money to them for phone cards for our military in Iraq. So I told my husband not to buy me anything for Christmas, but to give me the money to send for this cause. Then he told me not to buy him anything either and to send them more money. And please, Freepers, keep that petition for the Marine going at "Petitiononline".

I was in the middle of reporting panic values( multi -tasking) and saw the Gary Owen insignia you sent me and teared up. My son is 1-7 Cav. Anything to do with 1st Cav really gets to me. Those guys make me so proud.
