Troops need support whatever our view of war

Being a military man, I am so thankful for all the troops around the United States and overseas. The men and women in Iraq deserve our support, prayers and cards no matter if we think the war is right or wrong. They need to know we support them.

Saying we "don't" brings their morale down quickly. They give their lives for our freedom and liberty.

Their lives are not spent in vain. No one wants to lose a son or daughter, but that is what comes with war. I lost three friends in Vietnam. To see how the military men and women stick up for each other and help each other brings tears to my eyes and makes me happy that our military stands tall for the United States.
