Defining Photo Of Americans In War

I would assume most people with a computer have seen this photo before but for me it has to be one of the defining photos of the Afghan War. We all have it pretty warm and cozy back home while these guys are risking life and limb in a place a lot of people can't even find on a map if they had one in front of them.

As we enter the new year we need to stop and give a prayer and some kind thoughts to these men and women in our all volunteer armed forces. If you have not served in the armed forces you can't begin to understand what daily life is like for these folks.

Let's all hope and pray these young men and women stay as safe as possible in the coming year. The guy in the pink boxers and flip-flops and his buddies deserve the best we can give them to carry out their mission.

Post a Comment

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
