Bands of warriors: U.S. Marines prepare to transfer the flag-draped casket carrying Cpl. Brett Lundstrom, 22, from a hearse to a wagon last Saturday on the road leading to Kyle, S.D. “He earns the American flag from his government,” says Vietnam veteran John Around Him. “He earns the eagle feather from his people.”

May God's guiding hand be with that Marine and his family.

note: I just had to explain to my co-workers why I have tears running down my face. They also have tears running now.

I do believe the least we can do for Cpl. Lundstrom, his service and his people is to repost this and marvel at his, and their, service to our country.

RIP Marine

This IS NOT meant as an insult or disrespect, it's two show the contrast between people who have a clue, and those who don't. I did not see this elsewhere on the site.
Article: Wash Post defends cartoon
This is the cartoon. Personally, I don't know what to say other than the left MUST pay for this sort of thing in '06 and '08. I've been through Kyle, and I'm having a hard time with that picture.
