4. What a range of emotions today.
and at each moment, I feel great pride in my country, my President and the men and women who give their best effort, even to the point of paying the ultimate price.

7. It was an amazingly
emotional, patriotic feeling listening to PO just now.

Is that a pic of SFC Jared Monti?

8. truly sad- I heard an interview with his Dad the other day-
and at the end, when asked how he'd like his son to be remembered, he said, as a "humanitarian". His goal was to bring peace to the world, he said the "rambo" "g.i.joe" side of him wasn't who he was- he was someone who loved people- and wanted peace.

made me weep listening to it.


(i love your sig.)

11. Is that an Afghani scarf around our hero's neck?
In the photo above? ..... Given to him by a friend he'd made there perhaps?
