My last one is out of Iraq
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 10:51 AM by underpants
Luckily the last person that I know who was there got home last week.

He is about done with his enlistment and he was tired of killing after his first tour in Fallujah so I doubt that he will re-up but you never know. Great young man but from his siblings he is about the last person that you would expect to join the Marines (even though he is third generation Marine).

He isn't blood related to me but he is in the extended family. Someone very close to me is directly family to him. My cousin got home a few months ago from touring Sadr City everyday. Amazing that neither one of them got hurt (thank GOD) .



Marine- front of the front type stuff.
Nasty Nasty business there in Fallujah.

4. I've got a dear, dear friend going over there in the next couple weeks --
if he isn't there already. I hope your people left him some luck. It's his first time.

6. Glad to hear it! May the rest come home safe and sound
And may our nation be served by wisdom in such ventures in the future.

Only as a last resort to war. Not for profit. Not for ego. The men and women who take the field of battle deserve reasons as noble as they are before we commit them to war.

7. May they stay home
in peace now. It's good to hear, I just hope they don't do a recall, like they've done so many times before.
