This post is dedicated to the men and woman who have served and are serving in the United States military. I've never been in the armed forces, so I don't even pretend to know everything you go through or the sacrifices you have made or are making. But my father was in the Army during the Korean War so I have tremendous respect for you and what you do for us. I just wanted to let you know that you have people back home who love, support and respect you and who wish you a safe and speedy return. You sacrifice everything in your lives for people you don't even know. You may not call yourselves heroes, but that's what you are.
Thank You
The first of every month, I'll post this message. It would be nice to see people honor and thank the men and woman who keep us safe. So if you would like to take part in this, just save the image above to your server. If you don't have one, Photobucket or Tinypic are two great free host sites. What's great about this is that anyone can participate. There's no political leanings here. Show your support for the men and woman who defend our freedoms.

This post was so good that I had to copy and paste it here. Hope you don't mind Emily.
It seems that John Kerry told a very sweet story to Tim Russert, yesterday, about a friend he made while on a clandestine mission to supply the Khmer Rouge with weapons while in Vietnam:

"I still have the hat that he gave me, and I hope the guy would come out of the woodwork and say, 'I'm the guy who went up with John Kerry. We delivered weapons to the Khmer Rouge on the coastline of Cambodia.' We went out of Ha Tien, which is right in Vietnam. We went north up into the border. And I have some photographs of that, and that's what we did. So, you know, the two were jumbled together, but we were on the Cambodian border on Christmas Eve, absolutely."

Okay...I think this is as much news to the CIA as to anyone, seeing as how we didn't back the Khmer Rouge--at least we didn't provide them with arms--until the late seventies, when Vietnam threatened to invade Cambodia. Not only that, but its strange that the CIA would trust a swift boat captain to engage in clandestine operations, especially delivering arms to a Communist organization that did not form until late 1969, and well after, if I remember correctly, Kerry had finished his four-month tour of duty in a war to contain communism. I'm sure there's a really good explanation, though. John Kerry wouldn't lie, would he?
