Below are only a few of the warriors who have given all in the fight against terrorism. Who volunteered to serve their country, deployed to fight an enemy who wants to end the way we live in America. The most recent loss is not only another warrior but an AnyMarine contact as well-Semper Fidelis warrior, you are why we are thankful during the holiday season!

Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

  1. I saw the picture of the young marine with the million dollar smile and the all-American face and I felt sick. Then I read what General Patton had said and which you quoted. Yes indeed, I am gateful that the men of our military who have made the ultimate sacrifice lived and left a remarkable legacy to the nation – of patriatism, of their sense of mission, there perceptions of the enemy we face that those twice their age and older have not garnered from living insular lives and last but not least, their incredible humanity which is seen in their countless acts of human kidness, particularly to the children in Iraq and Afhganistan. I feel such a welling of pride when I see what they do in their daily patrols and interactions representing us better than those natty suited folk from State who will never match the US Soldier and Marine for the face of generosity and benevolence they present on behalf of America. God must surely have a special place for them in Heaven – they deserve it.
    Thank-you for sharing.

  2. We are truly blessed with our wonderful Marines! May you rest in peace LCpl Scholl. I read a story about St. Peter guarding the gates of heaven & he tells Marines to go in since they have done their time in hell.

  3. I was looking at the serried headstones of Arlington Cemetery online and made aware even more acutely what a price the best of Americans have been paying for the concept of Liberty for centuries and once again in a darkening world of totalitarian places where most people never even reach the dream of Liberty but live out their lives in the squalor of their totalitarian master’s whims, it therefore makes it even more poignant what a precious sacrifice is being paid by these great Hero’s of Liberty, for those civilians fortunate to live in Liberty, it is the greatest sacrifice,
    “For our tomorrow’s they gave their today” as relevant today as it was when first quoted in the Great War of 1911-1914 –
    May these Warriors Hero’s Rest In Peace and their brave families find some comfort from their Lord.
