Default God Bless Our Troops

Just a little something I saw on bravocompanyusa.com
I thought I would share.



It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag
that allows the protester to burn the flag.


By Father Dennis O'Brien
Chaplain, United States Marine Corps
God Bless Our Troops

Amen! A warm and hearty thanks to all of the brave men and women of the US Armed Forces that give me my Freedom to do as I please and a safe place to lay my head at night.

Thank you!

May your path be just, your aim be true and may the Boatman never know your name.

Thank you to all who are serving and to all who have served. We are in your debt.
