Things that make you think a little: There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January. In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the Month of January.

That was a 51-day operation. We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons In Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find The Rose Law Firm billing records. It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard Than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick It took less time to take Iraq than it took To count the votes in Florida!!!! Our Commander-In- Chief is doing a HARD JOB! The Military morale is high! The biased media hopes we are too ignorant To realize the facts But Wait there's more! JOHN GLENN (ON THE SENATE FLOOR) Mon, 26 Jan 2004 11:13 Some people still don't understand why military personnel Do what they do for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum Is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive Impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of one man's explanation of why men and women in the armed Services do what they do for a living This IS a typical, though sad, example of what Some who have never served think of the military. Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn): "How can you run for Senate when you've never held a real job?" Senator Glenn (D-Ohio): "I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions. My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different Occasions. I was in the space program . It wasn't my Checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was Not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the Daily cash receipts to the bank." "I ask you to go with me ... As I went the other day... To a veteran's hospital and look those men ... With their mangled bodies in the eye, and tell THEM they didn't hold a job! You go with me to the Space Program at NASA And go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans Of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee... And you look those kids in the eye and tell them That their DADS didn't hold a job. You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends Buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch Those waving flags You stand there, and you think about this nation, And you tell ME that those people didn't have a job? What about you For those who don't remember During WW.II, Howard Metz enbaum was an attorney Representing the Communist Party in the USA. Now he's a Senator! myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran.

Dang, today is Armed Forces Day and I can't take off for it. Well, I probably could have but I just found out about this festive occations like two days ago. There is suppose to be a lot of fun stuff for the kids at the Qwest Center's parking lots and such. And then there is suppose to be a concert in the evening. Well, at least I will be able to make my son's last game of soccer today, though. It will be fun, regardless. And it's starting to get really nice here too. Well, I hope everyone else enjoys this day.
Okay, so my roomie was tellin me the other day that in all actuallity, a vet is someone is serves his or her country by being deployed to a war zone. I for one was in the army and had that chance to serve my country. However, I was never deployed to a war zone. In fact, I was never deployed ever when I was in the service. She was telln me that I should not be considered a veteran. Do you guys actually believe this crap? I for one am a veteran and she tells me that I am not. So what can you tell me is true...I would really like to know.
Do you know a Soldier?? They sleep on cots made for just one Sometimes even with their boots on They awake long before the sun And work very hard to stay strong Strong for themselves Strong for their families Strong for the country they serve Strong for the flag that waves above They work and train In the heat, cold, and rain They sweat, they swear Sometimes wondering why they are there In the distance they hear gun fire And watch the hawks fly over They pray for their brothers Their loved ones and themselves And yet they go on Doing their job Determined to make proud The ones that have passed on They fight for justice They serve for freedom They cry for the fallen And celebrate the day These are our soldiers Proud and strong Serving flag and country Away and at home For the job they do We need to give our support So they know they are loved From the depths of our hearts ~~ I write this for every soldier - past, present, future - and offer you my up-most respect and gratitude for a job well done. Thank you. ~~ I would like to encourage everyone who knows and loves a soldier, whether past, present, or future, to repost this bulletin in their honor and memory.
