This is tough to read and go through, but you need to take a look. It makes me hate all of those smarmy hippie types who think tey are so damn morally superior to those of us who have worn the Eagle, Globe and Anchor. I so hate the Left in this country. They would destroy everything I hold dear.

I am warning you, this wil make you think, then it will make you sad, then it will make you mad. Thank God we have those who would serve their country.

I am not trying to pimp a thread here, but I am suprised no one replied to this thread. Does the average member care more about Israeli "babes" or some hypothetical dumb shit from the shot show than dead Marines?

Maybe it is me. I am going for a walk and try to understand my countrymen.

That is correct, it was posted on Nov 21, 2005. I just checked, the post is archived.

I could hardly read more than a few stories my self, without breaking down.

Minor repair job, no flame, no insult to the Corps.
Please remember this:not all of those that make the surpreme sacrifice are Marines.

That was difficult to read. Still, I'm glad I did, as I must have missed it the first time.

God bless the serviceman who perform notification duty. For me, it would be tougher than combat.

Though I'm sure it was meant as liberal propaganda, the article is a very good read. The sacrifices made by our servicemen and their families should never be forgotten.

It a good read.

As a former Marine myself it saddens me to read stories like this, because it makes me mad that the good, heroic creme of the crop young men are over there fighting and dying, while a bunch of spineless, liberal asswipes sit over here and protest.

I wouldn't trade the life of the lowliest Marine, for all the Michael Moores, George Clooney's and Bill Clintons in the world!

Semper Fi

So this is why I sent my perfectly good Leupold Vari-X mildot scope to Americansnipers.org. Maybe my scope can save a life and prevent a repeat of this funeral. And yes, there are more folks than Marines who fight and die, but I was/am one so this resonates.

I did not know this was posted before, I am new here as you can see.

Another great charity is http://www.semperfifund.org. They provide financial assistance to the families ofwounded Marines so they can travel to Bethesda or Brook Army Medical to be with their wounded sons and sometimes daughters. They also help out the families of Navy Corpsmen too. I am sure the Army andNavy have a similiar charity.

Semper Fi all. Have a good evening.
