It is the Soldier, not the church
Who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
Whose coffin is draped by the flag,
And who allows the protester to burn the flag.

I also know this as tip arch. it looks amazing under NVG's (night vision goggles)! It is pretty awkward while riding in a Chinook or blackhawk though and seeing this and a bit eerie, but interesting.

Though many of us feel that the Iraq war was the wrong turn for the war on terrorism, as it most definitely was and as an Iraq Veteran against the War.. One thing is for certain in wars like these...

Soldiers don't fight and die for the 'cause' but for the Soldiers to the left and right of them.

I've lost over 15 that I've known personally through out friends, and the within the military. Lookup: Staff Sergeant Leroy Alexander and realize that he had a wife Marissa with two kids, twins that he never got to see or hold. And I am sorry for your loss as well Helimx.

As well as the over 600,000 Iraqi civilians that should never have gotten to know American Foreign Policy in that manner...

The sad truth is we should have finished OBL and the Taliban in Trashcanistan before going or doing anything else. Bombing Iceland would have made about as much sense as Iraq after 9/11...What the fuck was Bush thinkin?? And from him on down the line to Cheney, Rumsfield, etc. should be tried for War Crimes and Crimes against Humanity to show the world that America can uphold justice. But it probably won't happen. Read the Peoples History of the United States by Zinn.

The Bill of Rights and the entirety of the Constitution and all of its amendments are as good as what we call 'Shit-tickets' with out the means to enforce and uphold them.

As for Plonk:
If you're some dumbass, spoiled, suburban, new-age piece of shit, that never worked a hard day in your pathetic little life, with your bars-tool and coffee-shop philosphy and no real fuckin experience to back it up "American." Why don't you post your address and I'll give you a reason to think Soldiers suck.

Courtesy of my fallen comrades and the US Army.

RIP Corporal Benjamin Kopp and Corporal Joseph Etchells
