My heart goes out to each and everyone who has served in the military as well as each family member and friend of our service personnel that was/is left behind. Each has experienced lonely, anxious hours. Children grow up without a home where both parents are there to nurture and comfort them. The absent parent misses the thrill of seeing the first steps , the first tooth, or hear the first word of their little one. Birthdays, anniversaries and family gatherings are spent apart.

We are told over and over that our military is fighting to protect our freedom. I ask, what foreign nation has threatened our freedom or tried to take us over since the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941?
Congress has not seen fit to declare war since then but we have constantly been in unconstitutional wars almost since the end of WW2. Who is benefiting? Could it be the big oil companies,the military industrial complex?

Our nation has suffered unnecessary loss of our young people
as many families lost loved ones in death. Maybe even more tragic are the maimed, emotionally scarred ones who are destined to be plagued by these unwarranted maladies day after day and long night after long night as they and their loved ones suffer the agonies of war injuries. And I ask again, for what?

We are rapidly losing our freedoms, but not at the hand of some foreign governments; it is at the hand of our government

Our Armed Forces are not fighting for our freedom. They are fighting for the following:

1. To impose our form of government on a very different people.

2. To have a means of advancement for the Officer Corp and Senior Non-Commissioned Officers.

3. To provide a means for staff personnel who work in in "safe" areas as administrators to receive Bronze Stars for "combat" service.
