Past all the political pundits who wrangle with words and time tables regarding Iraq… there are men and women who put their lives on the line every day for us. I admit that I am fiercely patriotic and supportive of all our armed forces. Thus the purpose of this post.
I have a friend in Oxford, Alabama who served as a chopper pilot in Vietnam. He still today bears the psychological wounds from his tours of duty there. In addition, he is a believer who loves the Lord and has a passion for the Faith. So when he sent me a link titled “How a Marine says goodbye,” I knew it would be powerful.
So for every person who loves our country and supports our troops, I suggest watching a short video that is about how they say goodbye. It will remind us all to be praying for them… wherever they are… as they protect our country and national interests.

Thank you specially goes to James Preston (USA Ret MWO-4) for sending me this link.
I am so proud to live in a country that men like these Marines will fight to protect my freedoms! What a powerful video!
A band of brothers is a true statement, whether it is Marines, Army or whatever. My dad, who fought for his
country in the Korean Conflict, still has yearly reunions with his “band of brothers”. Every year there are
less because this generation of Korean Veterans are getting old. I am so proud of my daddy for what he did
for this great country. I have heard him say, all of them would not have it any other way. God Bless America!!!
