Thanks for keeping this going. We as a country of individual people must support our service members during and after return. As well as the families in need.

Thank you all service members and their families. As one citizen I would hope that every one gets there needs taken care of asap. I pray for this every day.

Marion, thank you for your message. As an Iraq War veteran, I had the great pleasure of working with your country's service members as well. I will write a note about this and mention all forces as one coalition.

No one is the same nor would be much different from one another if we had shared each others lives, but, literary hypnosis, forced on people all their lives separate us, keep us at war with those who would destroy us, if they could, giving their all to see our end. Its all about developing resources to enable the world to rise to magitudes of literacy where war is indeed passed into time, the current internet information revolution is a solid beginning to that end, but, the world class mafia rules our world, fueled by lust and greed they make a slave/hireling world as monarchy rises once again, simultaneous to anarchy rising to see them perish. It looks like we should restore our, once independent nation, making in america what we consume while exporting to the world, with a military powerful enough to protect our nation from all comers, We do the right thing when we take the war to their land, they bombed our trade towers, islands, planes, etc--- continue terrorism the world over, its no longer safe to leave north america. I see troubled times ahead, but have hope in the worlds new generations who educate themselves on the internet separating right from wrong, elevating their literacy into a celebration of creation and discovery, instead of trying to kill everyone who does not share their predacessors preliterate pseudo belief systems

My late ex husband (we were married 36 years) was cursed, spit at, and ignored by wait staff and such. We took this in stride thinking that this is the Greatest Country in the World! The freedom that we celebrated as children teenagers and young adults had its price his number was not good so he joined the Army and became a 97 Charlie.

We traveled to Germany and when his hair was long and we were dressed like tourist we were treated well but when he had to have regulation hair that is when we noticed a difference even in Europe! that was the early seventies it is time for us to make others realize that respect is the only way to treat our Military! This has to begin at home! I am a Nurse and I am at this time taking care of a Marine that was at IJ during WWII This is such an honor! I am truly blessed to be able to give back a very small fraction of what he sacrificed for all of us! I will always support Soldiers are Heroes!

As a soldier I can understand your anxiety about how your husband was treated. My father was a soldier as well in the British Army as I am now. He was in the Irish Guards who are part of the Queen's Household Division. His Regiment were spat on in the 70's too by people who hated the fact that they were an Irish Regiment during the troubles that lasted 35 years in Northern Ireland, better days now.

I was humbled by the many people who came up to me and thanked me for my service. I have served in Iraq and Afghanistan for a total of 3 years. When I went to the US that was the first time starngers actually thanked me. So thank you to all Americans you made my year.

So many Hawaiian's served in the American military & paid the ultimate price. They believed in what they were doing...they taught me what sacrifice means...what Love, Loyalty, Honor & Respect means...
Anybody who can spit on that has NO CLUE...they even dishonor themselves...

Thanks Blanka and Keone. My first marriage was a victim of that war. When he came back, he was changed. He couldn't let anything be precious to him. He left, he never remarried. He is a Marine. too. I pray for all of our vets and those active duty every day. They get a Rosary.

Thank you, Sharon. I believe that most of us do not like wars, regardless of whether or not we think they are a necessity. That is the basis of the "war" between our hearts and our brains... Ideologies such as politics and religion can sometimes break us apart more than bring us together. It goes without saying how these concepts have broken families and countries apart... The question remains: What do we as individuals do to stop this domino effect?

Blanka Stratford To defend the right to be an independent country, where freedom is present was our main theme, we defend when we are attacked, and historically have defended the rights of nations who seek freedom, faced with a tyrannical world, that if it were not for us, smaller democracies, would no longer exist. You can think about yourself, or make an effort to do the right things, in our world. Our nation has not colonized other nations, after WW2, we invested 22 billion in both germany and japan, in 1945 $ to restore their battered infrastructures, even though they attacked us first like the middle east wars going on today, no one likes wars, but to refuse to defend or fight, is the end of us, and freedom as well---obama pretends, he believes war is not necessary and belittles the military demanding an end to our military, mostly, and to refuse treatment to veterans without insurance---we are ruled by a person who is trying to disarm our nation, who grows 1/3rd of the worlds food supply, with 6 % of the worlds starving tyrannical nations, currently building up their militaries, while spending money on obama, the destruction of america, for the food we produce. the only domino effect I see coming up is american individual people who will suffer the genocide of american hate.
