Military Appreciation by guardian-of-moon Military Appreciation by guardian-of-moon
09-08-05 Edit: 9-11 is come'n up. I was figure'n it was beause of 9-11 that our soldiers were sent over there... forget the fucked up reasons our president used back then, but it still feels like the two are linked. I know I won't have anything new up in time for 9-11, but knowing someone who died in the Pentagon makes me feel I should show some sort of support and let others know *I* didn't forget...

----------

I wear a metal, yellow ribbon pin on my work vest. It's in memory and honor of those who fought/are fighting in the middle east, not just for their freedom, but for ours, too. It disgusts me when customers ask me what the yellow ribbon means, but I'm happy to explain and spread the word.

is a soldier over in Iraq. I pray everyday for him ^_^ as do many other pray for him and the rest of the soliders.

I made the rose red for two reason. 1) Because it's the color of blood, so the rose is for the soliders who lost their life (or close to it) from the war. 2) Red roses stand for love, and I'm sure every solider over there has a least one person who loves and misses them.

serves in Hawaii, so this pic is dedicated to him, too ;)

God Bless All who serve in our country's defenses.

heh, no problem. I'm a navy brat via mom, dad, and step-mom so I have lots of pride in my government's military.... it's the government I despise ;)

I wish your brother to come home safe. I was lucky my parents only had to deal with the Gulf War, yet they were cryptologists -- people who do the secret codes and decode new information. They weren't on the front lines.

I understand. :hug: I wish the best for your father over there. I have a HS friend over there, right now. And someone I graduated with is going this October and another was shot there. Thankfully he survived and came home okay. When does your father come back?
