Keep praying or all of our military.
>
> Please read this poem and the note at the bottom and
> remember we are the
> "home of the brave".
>
> THE MARINE
>
> We all came together,
> Both young and old.
> To fight for our freedom,
> To stand and be bold.
>
>
> In the midst of all evil,
> We stand our ground,
> And we protect our country
> From all terror around.
>
>
> Peace and not war,
> Is what some people say.
> But I'll give my life
> So you can live the American way.
>
>
> I give you the right
> To talk of your peace,
> To stand in your group
> And protest in our streets.
>
>
> But still I fight on.
> I don't *****, I don't whine.
> I'm just one of the men
> Who is doing your time.
>
>
> I'm harder than nails,
> Stronger than any machine,
> I'm the immortal soldier,
> I'm a US MARINE!
>
>
> So stand in my shoes,
> And leave from your home.
> Fight for the people who hate you,
> With the protests they've shown.
>
>
> Fight for the stranger,
> Fight for the young,
> So they all may have,
> The great freedom you've won.
>
>
> Fight for the sick,
> Fight for the poor.
> Fight for the cripple,
> Who lives next door.
>
>
> But when your time comes,
> Do what I've done.
> For if you stand up for freedom
> You'll stand when the fight's done.
>

>
> HEY DAD,
> Do me a favor and label this "THE MARINE" and send
> it to everybody on your distribution list. Even
> leave this paragraph in it. I want this rolling all
> over the US I want every home reading it. Every eye
> to see it.
> And every heart to feel it. So can you please send
> this out for me? I would but I am sorta on the USS
> SAIPAN and my e-mail time isn't that long. You know
> what, Dad, I wondered what it would be like to truly
> understand what JFK said in his inaugural speech,
> "When the time comes to lay down my life for my
> country, I do not cower from this responsibility, I
> welcome it." Well, now I now. And I do,
> Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do.
> Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, and
> I will miss the birth of our first born child, I
> would do it 70 times over to fight for the place
> that God has made for my home.
>
> I love you all and I miss you very much.
> SEMPER, FI.
> AARON
>
>
> Please KEEP AARON AND HIS WIFE AND HIS UNBORN CHILD
> IN YOUR PRAYERS!
>
>
>
> Let Us all
> Pray for America.
>
> Pray for the safety of our Troops.
