    I got this on email, I just wanted to share with you guys:

    "I hope the picture will go through for you - of this Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny 'plot' of grass in front of his tent. It's heartwarming!

    Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq, stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. Soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil -- to bring them good luck.

    Thanks for posting. We need to pull out of all those sh!t holes and secure our borders. Its about time we let others fight for themselves for a while. Give the world someone else to hate.
