Thursday Thought


Pallets of cargo drop from a C-17 Globemaster III to a forward operating base in Afghanistan, Aug. 27, 2009, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The aircraft is assigned to the 817th Expeditionary Airlift Squadron.

As we walk through the aisles of our local grocery store and favorite bakery...let's not forget how our soldiers receive their food and water.

May Almighty God Bless each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine!

Hell is being in a place where I couldn't get to a Waffle House. They are 8,000 miles away frome one. They are truly in hell.

MightyMom said...

Wow...awesome post...you feel like guest blogging for me anytime and you name it !!! ....I was cranky today eh ? lol...great stuff your writing here. I'll be referring to it. In some small way on my blog I just want people to know we New Yorkers are surviving, and yet there is so much forgotten about our soldiers...I give them rides all the time , they are the reason I can drive freely while people shop !

I was so dismayed to read on tankerbabe's site that when she mails packages to Iraq, customers comment about how they did not know troops were still in the sand! Yikes. This healthcare debate is sucking all the oxygen out of the news. Can't wait to see what Mudpuppy says about it all once he has been back a few weeks. can you?

Mom,

I agree with you. Not a big Waffle House fan. They're like a gas station bathroom that serves waffles.

Now Denny's? A Grandslam at 1 AM. That's Heaven. ;-)

joyce...I too am disturbed that we are seeing record numbers of casualties in Afghanistan and there is no coverage.
Sad, very sad!
