SO!

What EXACTLY does all this have to do with Jeeps?

Or could it be that thor, taz and rich are just padding post counts again?

I was thinking something along the same lines when I read your post.

Some people just can’t appreciate the sacrifices and the courage of our forefathers without it being embellished Hollywood style. What really happened is not interesting enough for them.

You want heroes and martyrs. Some were created for you, Jessica Lynch and Pat Tillman to name a couple. What actually happened to these two people was not good enough for some people so a fictional account was reported. The fictional account did these people a great disservice. Once the truth was found, people got bored with it and forgot all about what really happened to these people. The truth was just not interesting enough for them.

The copy of the email you posted does the same. It sets expectations too high. When the truth is learned, it just doesn’t live up to the hype and the actual sacrifices are just too boring to register. Thus, I submit it is YOU who does the disservice to our forefathers when actual history doesn’t live up to your fictional movie or the week account. When people learn the truth, they become disappointed that it isn’t what they expected and don't recognize the real contributions and sacrifices made.

As amazing as it may seem, there are some things more important than Jeeps.

I didn’t bring this subject up, but being that Rich did, I’d like to see the record set straight.

Those who understand binary and those who don't.

The idiots that think the flag and our country aren't important and don't believe some have given everything for it can talk to my Uncle about it.

He's easy to find in Hawaii - he's been at the same address for years, his address is under the USS Arizona Memorial.

We were not talking to you TB, go stick to it somewhere else.


All the more reason to make sure your info is accurate, for your Uncle's sake. And to be anti-TB, your Uncle has my thanks, and it's all good Rich.

************************************************** ***

The True Heros Who Have Died This Month

With no disrespect intended to the Jackson family,

While the focus today, tomorrow and for the next God-knows-how-many-days will be the death of a pop culture icon; while many will mourn, wail and quite literally make fools of themselves over it and while as many will speak endlessly about it, allow me, if only for a moment, to remind us all that others have died this month; others whose lives were cut short; others who leave behind loved ones and whose families will dearly miss them; families who'll suffer with much more dignity and honor than we'll be exposed to on the tube in the coming days.

Yes... it's true... we've suffered a great loss... but forgive me while I tell you that I'm not talking about the king of pop music.

These American military members died in Iraq this month:

Sergeant Justin J. Duffy
Specialist Christopher M. Kurth
Specialist Charles D. Parrish
Lance Corporal Robert D. Ulmer
Staff Sergeant Edmond L. Lo
Sergeant Joshua W. Soto
Captain Kafele H. Sims
Specialist Chancellor A. Keesling

And these members of our U.S. Armed Forces died in Afghanistan this month:

Sergeant Jones, Ricky D.
Specialist Munguia Rivas, Rodrigo A.
Command Master Chief Petty Officer Garber, Jeffrey J. 1st Sergeant Blair, John D.
Sergeant Smith, Paul G.
Staff Sergeant Melton, Joshua
Sergeant 1st Class Dupont, Kevin A.
Specialist O'Neill, Jonathan C.
Chief Warrant Officer Richardson Jr., Ricky L.
Specialist Silva, Eduardo S.
Lance Corporal Whittle, Joshua R.
Major Barnes, Rocco M.
Major Jenrette, Kevin M.
Staff Sergeant Beale, John C.
Specialist Jordan, Jeffrey W.
Specialist Griemel, Jarrett P.
Specialist Hernandez I, Roberto A.
Sergeant Obakrairur, Jasper K.
Staff Sergeant Hall, Jeffrey A.
Private 1st Class Ogden, Matthew D.
Private 1st Class Wilson, Matthew W.

Let's remember and honor this day those whose deaths are truly impacting

If you want to see the entire list of the 4300 plus US servicemen killed in Iraq to date;
Forces: U.S. & Coalition/Casualties - Special Reports

Afghanistan war casualities (700 plus) listed here:

I didn't plan on posting this, but what the heck. Some one will probably have a problem with something in it. Anyway, it was a fun parade and my son had a great time throwing out candy and Moon pies.

At the risk of extending this bickering post, I liked the picture. You look like one of my pals.
