Veterans Day

June 2: U.S. Army Maj. David Waldron with the 3rd Infantry Division walks with his 3-year-old twins Zoe and Andrew to pick up his duffle bag after a homecoming ceremony for about 265 soldiers with the Special Troops Battalion after a 15-month deployment to Iraq, in Fort Stewart, Ga. The 3rd Infantry, which began sending troops home in March, was the first Army division called up for a third tour in Iraq.

Wordsmith, I've looked at a lot of blogs today, this picture is the best I've seen. There is nothing that shows what these men are fighting for more than this picture does.

Good post.

Very nice blog that you have here. I'm looking to blog roll you if you're willing to blog roll me back in return. Let me know.

WWII vets of the Greatest Generation. . .

So damned FEW of them left and, when they go, so goes our history as the media is replete with Historical Alzheimers -- and purposely so.

Christopher,

When I remember, I usually blogroll people automatically even if they only ever comment just once. But clicking your profile, it says it's not available.

How could the left-wing illuminati even think about not voting for the troops, and they're doing so much for us.
