Please Do Not Forget.

Praying for God's Blessings for my brothers and sisters in arms, may they return home safely. Please honor the fallen. Hats off to those who sally forth from the wire's relative safety from this humble specimen of support personnel.

I would like to express my honor & pride of being an American even though my family has only been in America for about the last 3 generations its such a great honor to be in a land with such corageous heroes as those that fought and died for our freedom and lives. There are no greater heroes, so I bow in respect to those who's courage has given us the strength to join in unity as Americans regardless of ethnic or cultural backgrounds were all Americans. So I will light incense in remembrance and will keep there sacrifices in my heart til the day I die.
