ET USN 71-78

I am glad our nation resolved to fight back (finally) and wish I could be there with you on the front lines of this noble and vitally necessary endeavor. You should forever be proud of your service to our country during this effort. I assure you most of us back home are extremely proud of you, too, and are grateful for your service.

It's a less dangerous front back home, but quite important nonetheless to keep our country on the right track. There have always been some in our midst throughout history who believe that our freedoms and values are not worth protecting with force. Those individuals are wrong, but they make a lot of noise and have a sympathetic and even supportive MSM to magnify their lame arguments. Those of us back home must remain vigilant to confront their inaccuracies and expose their sometimes covert motives and efforts to thwart our nation's successful engagement of our open enemies; this is going to be a long struggle on both fronts. The "home front" increasingly becomes very important in the struggle to successfully confront our enemies.


Thank you for your service. It is because of men like you that I have faith America will prevail. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


I cannot believe four years have passed...it still seems like just yesterday I watched the second plane fly into the WTC and collapsed to the floor, knowing we were being attacked. Staring at the screen all day barely moving from where I fell, mezmerized by the horror of all the carnage and death in NY, at the Pentagon, and the small field in Pennsylvania.

Rest in Blessed Peace my fellow Countrymen and women. My thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends who lost their loved ones...especially for our Military that protects us and those that have died in the line of duty...and for this great Country.

Thank you Major K, for all you do.

Deep within our memories lie the lives of those we have loved and lost, when we remember...they live again.

Never forget.

Consider a candle lit in your honor.


Thank you...


Beautiful post, Major K. Thank you for all you do.


Thank you MajK for your service in the War on Terror. Your part is not small, for rescuing Iraq (and Afghanistan) is key to our victory. Your current task in standing up the Iraqi Army is the critical component in cementing the victory.

THANK YOU for all you do for us... we are truly appreciative.

Hang in there... you remain in our prayers.


As a longtime lurker I would like to step forward for a brief moment and thank you for your service to our country.


I am thankful that you and thousands are others are taking the fight to the terrorist nations and liberating millions in the process. Never Forget.


It's men like you that help us Americans know that we are safe tucked into our beds at night, know that it is okay to step out of our homes and kiss the sun. We are safe because of y'all. And yesterday, I paused and thanked God for all of you, as I do everyday, but 9/11 is different. Thank you for everything...we couldn't ask for better people, such as yourself, defending our freedom.


In case enough of us ahven't told you recently..... THANK YOU for what you are doing for us. I live right outside NYC... I will NEVER forget.......


Thank you for the important work that you do! And for blogging, to help keep us informed, when MSM leaves a lot left to be desired. I think you can safely say that the job you do today will shape future generations to come; and you can all be proud of taking part in history in the making.

I blogged about my 9/11 experience, and it involved the death of someone I knew aboard the 2nd plane to hit the WTC.

Got this as an email and wanted to share with all..Take care..YPP..SemperFi..

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher,

who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter,

who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet,

who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer,

who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer,

who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician,

Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN,

who salutes the Flag,

It is the veteran,

who serves under the Flag,



I don't know if you saw this in the news but it really impressed me. Funny, our US Senate/House took 2 days off as they couldn't work because of the expected storm.

On the ABC evening news, it was reported tonight that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment.

They respectfully declined the offer, "No way, Sir!"

Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment, it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson.

The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930.

I don't usually suggest that many emails be forwarded, but I'd be EXTREMELY proud if this one reached as many as possible.

We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.

God Bless them.



No I don't think any of us will ever forget. I know I certainly won't. I lost my best friend from childhood. Anyways, I really like your blog and I read it everytime you post. Maybe not as soon as you post, but I do read it. I enjoy it. :))
