All are welcome to post herein, of course I know that this means that some people will come here only to post negative comments about the men and women of the armed services and the free countries of the world. This is the price that is paid for the freedoms that we enjoy in the real world and the cyber world.
I will not reply to negative comments and I hope that all others who honor the men and women who have or are serving with honor will not reply to negative posts either.
America was built on the ultimate sacrifice of men and women and continues to be the leader of the world because of the ultimate sacrifice made by its best and brightest. America is certainly not perfect, but she is certainly the best nation on earth. The men and women who serve in the armed services are not all perfect, many join for selfish reasons, but the vast majority are there to honor the ideals promulgated by the founding fathers.
Once again, thank you for your service and sacrifice.
Thanks for this thread! Hugs...

“God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her,
Through the night, with the light from above,
From the mountains, to the prairies
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, my home sweet home,
God bless America! My Home Sweet Home!”–Irving Berlin, God Bless America

God of our fathers, who by land and sea have ever led us to victory, please continue your inspiring guidance in this the greatest of all conflicts. Strengthen my soul so that the weakening instinct of self-preservation, which besets all of us in battle, shall not blind me of my duty to my own manhood, to the glory of my calling, and to my responsibility to my fellow soldiers. Grant to our armed forces that disciplined valor and mutual confidence which insures success in war. Let me not mourn for the men who have died fighting, but rather let me be glad that such heroes have lived. If it be my lot to die, let me do so with courage and honor in a manner which will bring the greatest harm to the enemy, and please, oh Lord, protect and guide those I shall leave behind. Give us the victory, Lord."

OMG ITS HAPPENING AGAIN

With flags to sell tin cup in hand
be hates thats hes a broken man
they see this man and his routine
but dont bother to notice hes marine

Broken by death he daily faced
When in Vietnam he was placed
The friends hes lost, forever haunt
The horrors he saw, forever taunt

The Viet-cong were cunning
he was sure he smelled them running
hiding in the bushes in the shortest of grass
He mowed them down as they tried to pass

The rain never stopped, turned into a flood
sleeping shoulder to shoulder deep in the mud
The use of Napalm was widely spread
with no oxygen to save the dead

Then he was captured, imprisoned in Hao Lo
What they went through, well probably never know
Beaten with clubs, bones broken and shattered
The tactics of interrogation leave the body battered

No heros welcome in our home-land
when we were ignored we dont understand
with purple heart in hand and smile showing pride
hes grateful no one could see the rage he held inside

We killed for our country, children and mothers
the blood on our hands could be that of a brother
Fighting went on and on, we thought it would never end
When we came home to America we had no friends

Men and boys the draft didnt ignore
were sent to fight on foreign shore
Fighting to keep America free
for all the people and for me

I feel this war is so wrong
lets bring them home where they belong
fighting in wars both now and then
OMG it is happening again

Tortured: When Good Soldiers Do Bad Things

[I dont feel like thanking them]

From the Inside Flap

"In Tortured, journalist Justine Sharrock brings us an eyewitness account of what it feels like to torture, revealing a huge chasm between what the headlines say about America's torture program and what really happened. Sharrock traveled around the country, talking to the young, low-ranking soldiers who worked at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, documenting the consequences of torture. These soldiers, thinking they would be heroes, followed orders from the top with the assurance that those orders were both legal and noble. Later, they realized that they had committed war crimes. Their experiences left them feeling disillusioned and profoundly betrayed by the very government they had set out to defend. For too long, these soldiers hid their reactions and revelations, silenced by family and friends who were determined to see them as war heroes and by the many Americans who think we should have done even more...."

From the Back Cover

"Powerful and important. Justine Sharrock talks to soldiers whose patriotic duty was warped by the Bush administration, making torturers out of ordinary men and women. A must-read for all Americans concerned by the corrosive impact of the Bush administration's 'War on Terror' policies on the U.S. military." Andy Worthington, journalist and author of The Guantanamo Files

"An extraordinary book that explores the ugliest underbelly of war. Sharrock takes the discussion of torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo into new territory, delving into the lives of the soldiers on the ground assigned these brutal tasks. Throughout the book, Sharrock maintains a balance between empathy and tough reporting as she examines the anguish and denial of men who participated in what can only be described as acts of evil but who do not believe themselves to be evil." Thomas B. Edsall, political editor, The Huffington Post
