One For the Team

Cait just reminded me of something. I wanted to take a moment to thank all of my brothers in arms that are deployed right now to Iraq. I know they will never see this post but i still would like to wish them the best and with all my heart wish I was there right now by your sides fightning the good fight for our great nation. To the 3rd Battalion 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment and attachments, Keep your feet and knees together and tuck and roll! Strike Hold, Airborne All the Way! And to everyone out there who reads this; you don't have to agree with our president, you don't have to agree with this war, but never treat a soldier like a second class citizen. George Orwell wrote, " People sleep peaceably in thier beds because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." We who serve you, the people of the United States of America, do stand ready to make sure you sleep well at night. We put our lives on the line everyday for you. I do not expect a thank you, or a pat on the back for I am just doing the job I love and have wanted to do since i was a child. The only thing that I would ask of you is to show me a bit of respect, and if you don't like what I do then look me straight in the eye and tell me to my face. And have the same respect for all men and women in uniform, "We may not agree with what you have to say, but we will fight to the death for your right to say it." Thomas Jefferson.
