Freedom isn't free... Soldiers you make us proud!

Real Estate Agent with Urban Acres Real Estate

Our soldiers make us proud to be part of this great USA.  As I walked in MPCHS this morning, I could feel the

atmosphere changing.  The raw pride of veterans...who have been there, to the sadness of families that will go

without their loved ones for such a long time, to the dignity of the soldiers dedicated in assisting this great nation. 

The gym was filled with emotions.  I looked around seeing so many faces I knew and thinking of how each and

every one of them will be affected by this send off.  Some of these men are headed back for the 3rd and 4th time.

AMAZING!  I feel spoiled.  Honestly, it takes me to a time while we were at the Olympics in Sydney, Australia, and

my husband stood on the podium to accept a medal on behalf of his country. WOW! The pride is unmeasurable. 

The blood, sweat and tears put in the process to get to that point is incredible (to say the least).  The sacrafice to be

there is over looked so often.  These men are doing so much of the same thing. Representing OUR country and their 

blood, sweat, and tears have been put into it! We owe them sooo much!  So the next time you see a soldier, or his family...

Tell them Thanks!  We owe it to them.  To the men of the 832nd.... Mount Pleasant, Iowa can't wait to welcome you home.

Be safe! God Bless! THANK YOU for all that you do for us! You are true heros!

I agree. 

Also, I'm still wondering why the founder of Wiki Leaks decided to endanger the troops by publishing their names and locations on the web.
