I do appreciate the kind words and support that you all have offered. It is by the will that every service member, Soldier, Marine, Airman, or Seaman face the daily trials of military service. That our county backs us, even if they do not fully back the reasons we are where we are.. or what we are doing.. Is powerfull and has such significance.. in that YOUR support. Validates us. So yes.. in the simplest of terms. Thank you. And I reiterate to my fellow brothers and sisters in arms throughout the world and especially in Iraq and Afgahnistan.. I you are in my prayers. Shoot straight, chin up.. and serve with honor.
If there is no Heart, the mind will never matter.
