It Is The Soldier!
This is also an important message to those in the media, to those in Hollywood, to all the left wing liberals, moonbats, and anti war protestors; to politicians both democrat and republican, and to the liberal moonbat anti-american anti-military anti- Bush majority that lives in Canada:
It is the soldier, not the journalist, who guarantees freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the politician, who guarantees our democracy
It is the soldier, not the diplomat that becomes a tangible expression of a nation's willingness to extend its calues and its ideals worldwide.
And is the soldier whose flag drapped coffin vividly democnastrates the ultimate cost of representing our beliefs in difficult and dangerous places.
People who volunteer to become soldiers and take on those daunting challenges, represent the very best citizens our country has to offer.

THANK YOU to all the Canadian and American soldiers now serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to those who came before, and who will come after:
You have my undying admiration, and my deepest respect, and my eternal gratitude.
To those in harms way:
To those who have returned:
WELCOME HOME. Job Well Done.
To those who paid the ultimate price:
"Your souls shall be where the heroes are
And your memory shine like the morning star"
