Patriotic video

August 21st, 2010 at 01:02 pm

I admit it. I'm a big softie. Especially when it comes to soldiers and patriotism. Last year I wrote a a soldier weekly when he was in Afghanistan. A few years ago I wrote another soldier while he was in Iraq. It was nice to hear from them, but I didn't feel like they had to write a lot...I felt like the soldier was already doing enough by serving our country. Right now a friend's son in in Iraq and I try to write or send a card now and then so he gets something at mail call.

On Facebook a friend posted this YouTube video called "I fought for you" and it is very powerful.

Hopefully the url will come through and you can watch it if you wish. Whether you agree or disagree with the war, I hope you will remember these men and woman represent us and are doing a brave job. Without the freedoms we enjoy, we wouldn't have the pleasure of saving money or spending it or blogging about it. I hope you find the video as inspiring as I did.

    I have a cold and cannot watch because I know my nose will become unbearably stuffed. Besides my dear SIL is home for his predeployment leave and all I have to do is really look at him to get choked up. He is leaving my just turned 2 year old granddaughter and my 23-year-old daughter.

    Thank you for what you do too!
