Only to name a few that have paid the ultimate sacrifice this week.
Did any of these warriors receive the media attention that either of the Hollywood “stars” received? Do you know what they have sacrificed for their country? These heroes make less than 10% of what the above Hollywood crack heads make and get zero media attention and their families sacrifice so much more. Not to mention that we are now involved in 3 separate wars. Closing Ops in Iraq, full scale operations in Afg and into Ops in Libya. This is going on while at the same time we are rapidly shrinking our military size & forces at the cyclic rate.
Your military continues to answer the call any time or place despite what the American media thinks is important and glamorize the drug addicted “role models” of Hollywood. I would just like to see the above military warriors mentioned in more than a DOD release of local news fade out where a news caster says…In Afghanistan local boy was killed just before they go to commercial. Sad.
Look around America, you military is one of the solid columns holding this nation together, Not some Holywood drug addict with too much money. When you buy those lame ass tabloids in the grocery store, you are supporting their cause and telling them, yes its important t for me to spend my money on this instead of donating to support the troops. Wow, that is saying a lot about us as a country.
Keep you tabloids and read your trash because your military are providing the blanket in three wars for you to do that freely. What do you think is really important?
Time for a Cgar, we are going to be busy!
