Here is a picture of me from about this time five years ago.  I dedicate my B-day and this blog to all those that are serving in harm’s way right now.  No matter what the sad, pathetic excuse we have for a media in this country tells you,  99.9% of them are serving because they love and are proud of this country.  They aren’t fighting for political or religious reasons.  Unfortunately, most of the Marines I served with were probably atheist, but they believed in something: the cost of freedom.  Don’t get me wrong, I had a great B-day today!   However, since 9/11 and coming home from Japan on the 8th of 2002 and Iraq on the 7th of 2003, it is always a surreal time for me.  Heck, I used to drink for a week, but by the grace of God, I don’t have to do that anymore.  Do me a favor readers: please pray for all of the troops that are in harm’s way over seas and all of the veterans suffering from addictions right here at home.
