SHAME ON AMERICA SHAME ON OUR MEN AND WOMEN WHO SHUN AWAY FROM THEIR DUTY TO SERVE THE CAUSE OF AMERICAN FREEDOM

REMEMBER ONLY ONE PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION IS FIGHTING THE WAR AGAINST TERROR ONLY ONE PERCENT OF AMERICANS ARE DOING THE WORK OF PROTECTING US ALL.

He patrols the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists. He’s told he will be held over an  extra 2 months. 

You call your girlfriend and set a
date for tonight.
He waits for the mail to see if there
is a letter from home.

You hug and kiss your girlfriend,
like you do every day.
He holds his letter close and smells
his love’s perfume.

You roll your eyes as a baby cries.
He gets a letter with pictures of his
new child and wonders if they’ll ever meet.

You criticize your government, and
say that war never solves anything.
He sees the innocent tortured and
killed by their own people and
remembers why he is fighting.

You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.
He hears the gunfire, bombs and
screams of the wounded.

You see only what the media wants
you to see.
He sees the broken bodies lying
around him.

You are asked to do some thing by
your parents. You don’t.
He does exactly what he is told even
if it puts his life in danger.

You stay at home and watch TV.
He takes whatever time he is given
to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

You crawl into your soft bed, with
down pillows, and get comfortable.
He tries to sleep but gets awakened by mortars and helicopters all night long.


REMEMBER our Troops and their Families





All of us that have served our country on the battlefields of the world know a letter from home is gold, a picture of a loved one is a reminder of what we are fighting for.  

Patriots, our troops have been on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan for going on 11 years now, they have served countless tours.

They are fighting for our freedoms and while they are giving up everything our congressmen and senators play politics!






Please pray for our troops and their families, prayer will see them through this time and prayer will help those families who have lost loved ones in this war and past wars.
