Please pray that our brave young men come home safely. Remember that they are all volunteers and no matter what you think of the war they deserve our support.
Do your job and come home safe, we love you and are very proud !

It's too bad that these fellows were not sent there in 2001 instead of Iraq. We would have cleaned up the enemy and saved billions of dollars and lives. Haliburton Cheney and Bush would be much less wealthy but sad to say they will have to wait and give account of theirselves to the Maker of us all.
