I'm not saying that I agree with all the politics that are going on over in the middle east and I'm not even saying that I agree with our soldiers being there. But I am proud of the individuals that have chosen to protect our country. A soldiers purpose is to protect our constitution. And those men and women (In some cases they are just boys and girls to me) who have chosen to do this are very brave and deserve our gratitude no matter what our beliefs are. And this is just my opinion and because of the sacrifices of these men and women, past and present, I can voice my opinion without fear of retaliation.
