Posting THIS & THIS, it was a reasonable response to a few items like, let’s
see, 20,000 Marines being fired in Feb, massive unemployment in
the US (compounded with at least 20,000 in Feb and sequential months of military
personnel being dismissed) nut jobs shooting up schools and the current state
of America. I can tell you, being overseas and looking at America, we have some
serious issues and other countries are pointing and laughing because they see
America falling, fast.
After he delivers all the toys to the good boys and girls
around the world, Santa gets back on the job delivering hot lead to the bad
Santa, he’s the Man! I hope that everyone has had a great
& safe holiday. Sometimes the holidays can be stressful, but remember the
true meaning of Christmas and know that the time spent with those you love is
important, one day they will be gone.
Those of us away & out of the US would like to be with loved ones so
if nothing else don’t take the holiday season for granted, we wouldn’t if we were there.
Have a safe New Years and we will help ya bring it in with a
bang on our end….Marine style.
Thank You! Because of readers like “YOU” reading this blog One Marine’s View has not only blown our daily readers attendance of 1K a day out of the water but currently is just under 9k for today (Christmas Eve 2012). I must say I was taken back a bit when I saw that there was almost 9k visitors today alone.
This surge has put One Marine’s View over 1 million readers as of today. A blog that simply started as tracking my excursions through Afghanistan, then Iraq, then Afghanistan a bunch more times has become a blog that tries to bring a bit attention on those that serve. Specifically, that young Marine, Soldier, Airman, Sailor and Coastguard service member out there doing what many have chosen not to do and doing it honorably.
One Marine’s View doesn’t do advertising. Sure, I could make some coin on placing ads on the blog ( I get a lot of requests daily to put ads on the blog) but my take is that it’s not about making money, it’s about getting the attention to those young warriors.
I spose its fitting that One Marine’s View hits 1 million on Christmas Eve because the blog is about giving back to our nations gunfighters.
Enjoy those you are with this holiday, enjoy the feeling of Christmas and please remember those that are away from their families doing an honorable thing and know somewhere, their family is missing them.
You have never seen Elvis, Santa and any Marines in the same
place, to include myself. Go figure. Despite the many issues in America and around the
world, know your Marines are with you und we all wish you a very Merry Christmas
(including Elvis – yes he is still alive). Semper Fi, Merry Christmas and Happy
Enjoy each other regardless who you are with, have some
Freaking Awesome!!! Instills continued pride for Vets,
serves a trade they are very familiar with, good at and protects soft targets.
Additionally provides an immediate job gap for the 20,000
Marines getting fired in Feb. Think
it will happen?
better to live one day as a lion than a hundred years as a lamb."
