    Eduardo 1... I am with you! I have had the pleasure/pain of making contact with John Bernard, the retired Marine that his son was killed and they posted his pics all over the media, if you remember... His website is letthemfight.blogspot.com/
    Really good reading there if you want to know what is going on!!!
    I SCREAM IT EVERY DAY... LET THEM FIGHT OT BRING THEM HOME! DOES AMERICA STILL REMEMBER OUR TROOPS OR CARE?
    God be with them all.
    Wife, mother, and mother-in-law of former Warriors who God-willing made it home! Semper Fi.
    Peace and prayers to the loved ones of these fallen heros.

    more & more of our brave young men murdered for these 13th century poppy growers.
    Where is the outrage of the: media, college student, college professors, Hollywood types,politicos and other liberals who were screaming for the head of GWB.
    And all we see on this site is SEMPER FI & brave heroes.

    Yes, they WERE brave, but what cause did they die for. To keep us safe.

    Do you really feel safe as we get daily reports of their deaths & mutilations?
    Do their families and friends feel safe losing their loved ones?

    I do not feel any safer because of their sacrifice, I only feel sorrow for those whom the left behind, and for the cripples who come home minus: arms, legs, eyes, etc

    You will notice after his first photo op at Dover AFB, Czar Obama & foot 'n mouth Biden, no longer are there to greet these heroes in body bags and wheelchairs
