I am a soldier in the 4th infantry division. I've been in Iraq since April
When President Bush came into this country to visit soldiers on
Thanksgiving day, something was realized by a lot of people regarding the
President as a person. I have always respected and appreciated President
Bush, and after 8 months in Iraq, I will still be happy to vote him back
into office. But his visit to Baghdad, though I wasn't able to be there,
did something for the morale of the people here that would never be
understood by people who aren't here. Until you've seen first-hand the
dangers of this country, you can't fully respect what a sacrifice was made
by our commander in chief. I am proud of him, and thankful for a president
who does what he feels is right.

batallion, contacted each state and requested a state flag. Many states

Old Glory. All states, that is, except for NY, which sent us a letter
telling us that for __ dollars shipping and handling they would be happy
to send us a flag. And do you know who the letter was signed by? Take a
The soldiers here know what's going on with Hillary, and we couldn't care
less if she never steps foot in Iraq.

What can I say, I chose poorly.
