Stand at ease Cpl. Richard Loring. Thank you for your service and especially for your sacrifice. And welcome home.
some of the wise asses who deign to campaign against this wonderful country should thank the likes of Cpl Loring who fought and died for their freedom to do so. I cannot stomach those frauds who do not deserve to live in a place that they rail against. Don’t like it here? Leave. I assure you that you won’t be missed.
God Bless your soul Corporal. Welcome Home.
