Had a conversation recently with a young active duty Major (from my perspective as a Vietnam era Marine) who has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He told me in no uncertain terms that we needed to get out of Afghanistan now ... it was a total shit hole with absolutely no redeeming virtues. I’ve been in this forum (FR) for a long time and I’m not making this up ... I’m not being any more specific because I want this officers opinion to remain anonymous.

Prayers for these Marines fighting it out in Afghanistan and for the families of those who have fought their last.

I have encouragement that we will get Romney elected and finally. after four years, have a Commander in Chief who honors and supports our Military.

I feel the same way. Of course we need to get out of Afghanistan right away.

Obama wouldn't provide our warriors with what they needed to get the job done and win, has made it obvious he sides with the enemy, tells the enemy when we will leave, and continues to release the Islamic terrorists from GITMO!

Our troops are sitting ducks with “green on blue” attacks happening more and more since Obama told the enemy when our troops will withdraw from Afghanistan!

Please go here and read more. And realize Bob McCarty has been spending his life bring out the truth!! Be watching for his upcoming book, “The Clapper Memo”!

Documents: Obama, Holder have approved one of bin Laden’s bodyguards for release or transfer from Gitmo.


When you release someone like this, you condemn someone else to death — because these “Dirty 30” types are trained-up, homicidal maniacs.

NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE

Yes, but they can kiss another serviceman while in uniform, even marry him! May God have mercy on America!

We have kids coming down here all the time on these trips. They are once in a lifetime events for kids who are terminally ill,just so wonderful for the kids and the family you can't imagine.

Zero is a muslim/Mancuhrian plant. When you consider that all these things make sense. My guess is this is another of zeros 963 and counting EO's.

This election is so big if we lose we will lose the country I fear.

This story occurred in 2009.
http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/faithbased.asp

According to the Starkville Daily News, Sgt First Class Stube’s speech was canceled due to a DOD policy barring military from speaking at “charitable events” (not specifically faith based events.)
Catch a Dream Director confirmed the cancellation was due to existing policy regarding involvement of military in fundraising activities.

13 Brave Warriors of the 5th Marines Darkhorse Battalion lost their lives in October/November of 2010
http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/prayer/darkhorse.asp

Snopes info is questionable at times but in these cases it appears they have it right.

Not one word from the Campaigner-in-Chief today at the UN regarding the great sacrifice of our brave Warriors, not one word! He is despicable!

I want to thank all of you Freepers for all your support for our Troops. Their morale is so low so thank you all very much! Your support means the world to them.
Thank You!

My heart really can’t take much more of this. Everytime I see Obama golfing I think about the amazing, gifted, heroic men we are losing because of him.

We have work to do from now till November 6th!
This is a message I received previously, and here it is again:

PLEASE SEND THIS ON TO ANY MILITARY FRIENDS, AND ASK THEM TO FORWARD IT ON.

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in
Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before.

Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50
additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan .

The commander in chief is AWOL. Not a peep, although he
ordered the White House flag flown at half staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent incompetence of this president.

It has taken on a dangerous tone. No one knows what to do
about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.

Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during
which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform. But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president. Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard,Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.

The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.

Veterans: Please forward to your lists. High Priority!

We can all help in various ways to make Mitt Romney our next Commander In Chief! One who will honor and support our Military!

I know many folks can't help with donations as their families come first and that is certainly understood. But those who can not help elect Conservatives through donations can help in many other ways. Put signs in your yard, if you can. But most important, make phone calls from your home or from a call center and help walk your neighborhood precincts passing out information to neighbors. Talk to as many folks as you can, and tell them why you are voting for Mitt Romney. The “boots on the ground” actions like that really do help!

When November 6th comes, I want to be able to say, “I did everything I could”.....NOT... “I wish I did more!” My husband and I will not give up or take time off from doing everything we possibly can! Let's make sure we celebrate on the evening of Nobember 6th!!

A thank you to Florida Congressman Bill Young from Beverly Perlson of The Band Of Mothers:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2208049/American-soldiers-haunting-prophesy-death-Afghanistan-minefield-prompts-change-heart-Capitol-Hill.html#ixzz27WyqVlTy

Staff Sgt Matthew Sitton words, before his death, asking for help:

‘As a Brigade, we are averaging at a minimum an amputee a day from our soldiers because we are walking around aimlessly through grape rows and compounds that are littered with explosives’

Staff Sgt Matthew Sitton’s Mother:
She continued: ‘Our question was not why they were there. That's not the question. We know why they were there. Our question was: Why are they doing the two-to-four-hour foot patrols in areas that are littered with bombs?’

My heart is breaking for these Brave Warriors. Please call your Congressman and Senators and demand our Troops come home! This enemy is afforded every advantage on this battlefield and our Troops are being killed, maimed and or incarcerated! This horrendous treatment of our Sons and Daughters Must End Yesterday! Stop the Foot Patrols Now and untie the hands of our military so they can have a fighting chance to win or BRING THE TROOPS HOME! This is cruel!

Again, my deepest condolences to the family of Staff Sgt Sitton and all our Gold Star Families! Thank you to Congressman Young of Florida for taking a courageous stand for our Noble Warriors.

My utmost respect and appreciation to Diana West for her continued courage in reporting the horrendous treatment of our military.

Please forward this and Please Pray For our Troops!

Beverly Perlson
The Band of Mothers
