As you know, I do a Fallen Heroes post every Wednesday. Well, I want to change it up some. For the next few weeks I'm going to be profiling soldiers who either are still in Iraq and Afghanistan or have come home safely. All we hear on the news is about the soldiers who have died, makes better news I guess, we rarely hear much about the ones who are still there risking their lives or who have made it home. I think they need some recognition as well. Some will have pictures and/or a small bio and some will won't because I was just unable to find anything. I've asked Greta's husband and STG_E to help me with this, being that both were in Iraq, so some of these will be people they know as well.

"As a Marine, you don'’t wish for this, but you train for it. Every Marine is fully prepared for what we are going to do."

These brave men and women risk their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
