Daryll Worley just got done playing a few songs over here in Ramadi, Iraq for a USO show. He played "Have you forgotten?" and the crowd was dead silent. I fought back a few tears myself. After all the complaining I've done about being here for the last eleven months and wanting to come home it was a good reminder of why I'm here, why we're all here.

By the way, no one took me up on posting a picture here for me. Anyone who can post a picture and would like to see an interesting picture of Saddam IM me and I'll send it to your email.

from Iraq

most of the time it's not in the front of my mind. but then i see a picture of the towers or the empire state building. and it all comes back.

It's always in my mind. I work about three blocks from where the towers stood. Everytime I go outside and I can see the sky where the Twin Towers used to be, I get so fuckin angry. I WILL NEVER FORGET!

Not I. The last time I made a trip North to visit family (northern PA & upstate NY) we made a sidetrip to Shanksville and I talked with my daughters about what happened there. I think it will be a part of each trip we make in the future. I remember. I remember the first two airliners and the WTC. I remember the third one and the Pentagon. Then I remember the fourth airplane, whose passengers learned what was happening and decided they would not go quietly into the night. I remember their courage and sacrifice. We'll never fully realize the debt we owe them. I remember the people, the victims and the heros. I also remember the villains, for a different reason.

Leo - in my house, we have not forgotten - we still talk about 911 and we talk about what you and yours are sacrificing.. every night when we say grace we ask God "take care of our troops"..

Thanks for your service leo6223. I really appreciate the sacrifices our service men (and women) do for this country. I pray that the Lord look after all of you. If you can't get ahold of anybody else feel free to e-mail me. Click on the tag in my post. Please identify yourself and or AR15.com if you do. I have a spam block and I'd hate to delete the message because I didn't recognize the sender.

How could I EVER forget. Not in this lifetime, and THAT is for sure.

As I say every time I hear that song, "HELL NO!" I will never forget that day. Leo, thank you and your compadres for your service, and thanks to all who served. Brasspile, I'd really like to have that picture with the Eagle and the Towers in 1024x768, do you have a full size of it by chance? Thanks! Michael
