It is a darned shame the papers don't print things like this letter.
Our military has done such an excellent job both militarily and on a person to person level with the Iraqi people.
This young man is not only articulate he has a good grasp on the war.
With gratiude to our Military


Despite an enormous anti-US feeling toward the cut and run Europe, the Web has became the new counter-power for Europeans concerned about the War on Terror, the triumph of the idea of freedom and for all the Europeans who deeply admire President George W. Bush and see him as a new Ronald Reagan.

Just take a look on this blog :

Let a message under the article ("commentaires) to support Republican revolution in Europe. It certainly needs a lot of courage to refuse political correctness and US hatred and to look for the truth about the USA and the party of conscience.

God bless our Marines! I shake my head in wonder..where do we get such men, and why are we so blessed to have them!? Thank God for them every day.


I am so happy to have found this web site. It's a real encouragement to read a letter like this one. I think that cadets like myself need to hear stuff like this more often. It revives that feeling of pride in our boys. God bless Marines!


Thank you for this story, and for everything You and the Marines do to keep us safe here at home.
Your devotion to this country is deeply appreciated by Myself and my Family.

This is very encouraging to say the least. I would much rather read this in the media than have celebrity so-called news mixed in the news ad nauseum instead of on the entertainment show where they belong, if there. Thank God for blogs like yours, Major.I am full of gratitude for this young man and his brothers and sisters around the world. His Dad can be very proud of him.

Semper fi Major!!

I'm so glad and so damn PROUD of our fighting forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am an Army Vietnam veteran who still feels to this day that the liberal media and the bleeding heart crybabies of the 60's made it so that over 58,000 of my comrades died for nothing! If it takes my dying breath, it won't happen this time!! When the mission is done, Then and only then can we depart. Your upbeat post makes me think that we are getting closer to that day. You have this Americans heart felt THANK YOU! Please pass it along to your men and women.

One more thing; could I possible have your permission to have this post printed in the local media?
