Why are we sending more men over there. Isn't this conflict over and we are going to start bringing them all home ? I'am confused.

Looks like Nicole needs a few weeks of PT and a stringent diet before she'll be able to be of any use.
Unless her job is to shield a dozen soldiers that are in shape from shrapnel.
What the heck are you talking about? What a tool you are!

As a parent, myself, I am deeply grateful to all of the soldiers who are giving up their time with their family so that I can keep time with mine. Words can't express how humbled we as a country are that you are fighting for us. Whether we agree with sending more troops out or not, we appreciate you.

My heart and prayers go out to these deploying soldiers. My disdain to anyone who would say anything bad about any one of them. We are deplopying more soldiers because we need to relieve the ones over there, anyone with any sense would know that. As the mother of an injured soldier and friened of a gold star mother who lost her 20 year old son in Iraq I can honestly say god bless these soldiers.

Looks like you should attempt to prove that holing one's breath for 12 hours IS NOT dangerous to one's health. Ready......GO!

Cruel! Very cruel! I take it you were never in the military?

I know what that poor mother is going through. Yes, you're right..so easy for you to say "See-ya, wouldn't want to be-ya," but at least she's brave enough to face her commitment in the military and serve our country.

Be safe fellow comrades, been there and done that. The sacrifice is tremendous and leaving our children is the hardest part of it all. Unless you have been in the military and have been deployed would you know the feelings that us soldiers go through. But we do it because of committment to ourselves and our country. Soldiers believe in HONOR, I wish people would just do the same and this country will not be in the mess it is.Pray for my buddies safe return as soon as possible. May GOD bless your all.

Been there, done that. Didn't weigh 350 pounds.

She isn't going to help anyone but the enemy looking like that.

I wish them all a safe journey and return home, especially Nicole (the girl holding her baby). I used to work with her at Fuddruckers

Oh my god what a horrible thing to say. Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetary when they bury the ashes of a young soldier because his body was destroyed in an IED attack? Have you ever been to Section 60 and seen the birthdates of the soldiers killed? You
will regret saying that sometime in your pathetic life which is obviously without any significant honor.
