I may not always believe in and trust our government, but I will ALWAYS believe and trust the American Soldier. You have taken a sacred oath to protect the many FREEDOMS that so many of us take for granted. Please understand that I am grateful for your sacrifice(s) and your service on my behalf. It is an honor to call you "My Countrymen".
Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.
