It Is The Soldier!

This is dedicated to all the milbloggers I have been priviledged to come to know through their writing, to all the soldiers and Marines, that I have met personally or through the cyber world, to those who served before, to those who will serve tomorrow, and to those who have paid the ultimate price, and to their families, I am forever grateful to ALL of you!

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.

"We didn't ask for a world that needs heroes, but truth is we do, NOW more than ever!"
(Chloe Sullivan to Clark Kent, Smallville)

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:
Stay safe.
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"

    A day late and a dollar short, but no less fervent:

    Regardless of national politics, THIS Marine (and, soon, Guardsman) counts the Canadian war-fighters among the very top of the list of folks whom I would particularly desire to have at my side in a combat environment.
    The tenacity and grit of the Canadian Tommy remains ledgendary, and I want to express my most profound gratitude and respect to the stalwarts who have worn their country's uniform.
