Please don't forget the Italians, who, I believe, have the third highest number of troops in Iraq. They are in Nassiriyah, and they are also in Afghanistan, at the border check point in Herat, a nasty location. They have lost 19 men so far in Iraq, and by all accounts are performing admirably.

We have so much to be thankful for! Just a few years ago the world as we knew it changed. 911 was a shocking awakening for the entire world! Since that time we have seen much progress. The taliban has been eliminated. Saddam can no longer devistate, torture, murder and do all the devistating havoc he had done! Iraqi people are on their way to a free society. . .

There are many moving posts today, but don't miss this one by Don Surber. It damn near broke my heart.

Frank D. - Thanks for that post. The fact that a surviving WWI veteran has too much income to qualify for VA benefits kind of makes you think about Social Security ...

My own memorial story for the day, John C. Waldron, RIP.

Here are some quick tips for adding simple Textile formatting to your comments, though you can also use proper HTML tags:

*This* puts text in bold.

_This_ puts text in italics.

bq. This "bq." at the beginning of a paragraph, flush with the left hand side and with a space after it, is the code to indent one paragraph of text as a block quote.

To add a live URL, "Text to display": (no spaces between) will show up as Text to display. Always use this for links - otherwise you will screw up the columns on our main blog page.
