"Support our Troops"

Wow, it's not just in Ketchikan about the "Support our Troops"
magnet swiping. Mine happened to be when the rallying was going
on up in Anchorage before the Iraq elections and I happened to
be up there overnight. I awoke to my "Support our Troops"
magnet being gone off the tailgate of my 4Runner. Sorta ticked
me off. But then read later that a lot of people who are not
supporting the war and President Bush are the culprits. Makes
me sick to my stomach to even see this starting in this day and
age. We treated our Vietnam vets like dogs when they came home,
is it going to be the same for our guys over in Iraq defending
us so we can ALL sleep well at night? I certainly hope that
isn't the case. In my eyes, that's what it says to me.
We all should support those
guys over there 110%! Have you seen what sort of living conditions
they are putting up with for this effort to keep America safe?
Makes me sleep a lot more sound at nite. The stealersof these
magnets can keep rippin them off my rig all they want, I bought
a stash of them to just keep puttin' on my truck whenever one
gets stolen to keep people reminded of why our people are over
there in the first place, September 11, 2001. Where were you
when the twin towers fell to the ground --- and the Pentagon
was crashed into --- a small bunch of pround Americans charged
the terrorists in the hijacked plane they were in and crashed
it over a grassy field that kept the Capitol from being a target?
NEVER forget why we are there.
Peace, love and all the best
to my fellow and female friends in Ktown.
