I have 17 grandchildren and I
can't think of any profession they will choose that will make me more proud
than if they choose the military - any branch. My sons and daughters have served
their time and I am proud of them. To all our brave young men and women, I say
"Thank you. I am proud to know some of you and grateful to all of

My name is SFC Jesse Berlanga. I just wanted to write and tell you how
much myself and my soldiers appreciate all the support you have given to us.
I am currently deployed to a place I cannot say. I can only say that this
is my second time here in 12 yrs. I was also here during Desert Storm. It
is great to know that the people in SA and all over the world support what
we are doing. It will only make our homecoming a whole lot better when we
return. From my soldiers and myself, we thank you from the bottom of our
hearts. You are truly worth fighting for and our freedom and safety for our
country is what we defend. I was born and raised in SA and have been in the
Army for 18 years. I will retire in 2 years and come home to SA, because
there is no better place in the world to be than in SA. Thanks again and
God bless Texas and the United States of America. Keep up the good work

I am a retired Air Force Officer,
who like you stands proud when the National Anthem is played and doesnt
think twice about placing my hand over my heart when it is played. I am
not forced to do this, it is my choice; a choice each of you allow me to make
because of your service and your efforts to protect our freedom and way of life. I
proudly served my country as you are doing now and I sleep better knowing that
the legacy of the American Serviceman lives on in each of you. That legacy
is a proud one full of honor and courage. Many courageous men and women
have served before you, yet none more courageous than you today.
I remember the feeling I had when I put on my uniform for both the first and last time and will treasure it always as I know you do. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of seeing one of my employees a former marine and now an Army National Guard member, he mentioned his unit had been placed on alert for possible deployment and wondered if he could show me a photo album. In this photo album he contains various pictures of him in training and uniform. Here is a young man who served proudly while on active duty and serves proudly today as a member of the Guard. He too remembers the first time he put on his uniform and the pride that exudes from young men and women when they do so. Do you remember the first time you put on your services uniform? The first crisp salute you gave or returned?
Much has been said about this generation of Americans, many of it has been negative. If one wants to see the greatest generation ever, it is present in the battlefields ofIraq,Afghanistan, The Philippines and the countless other places you serve. While you serve onboard ships, in planes and on the land know that many Americans men, women, and children alike respect you, honor you, pray for you, and have the deepest admiration for each of you.
I pray for each of you and your families daily. I pray for peace and for each of you to return soon to your wives, husbands, children, mothers and fathers.
BRAD I & MY FAMILY ARE 100%+ BEHIND OUR TROOPS.MAY GOD BLESS THEM & BRING THEM HOME SOON.I HAVE A NEPHEW OVER THERE & I HOPE THEY KICK ASS & TAKE NAMES LATER.KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK ALSO BRAD.MANY THANKS BOB GAVLIK
To all the troops,
My family and I stand behind you all the way and pray for your safety and success daily. Thank you for what you are doing to keep us a safe. We know that is because of you and soldiers before you that we can enjoy our freedom in this great country.
Gods blessings on all of you.
Ya'll done good!
We have a few slow learners over here who haven't learned to recognize a just and honorable fight when they see it. Nearly all of America supports what you are doing and we appreciate the added feeling of safety and protection of our freedoms which you provide.
Don't worry about the overblown reports about opposition to your duty. It is hogwash spread by a few angry malcontents who carry an empty grudge.
Me and the people I work with all agree, if push comes to shove and you need us, we'll all come runnin.
If you get the chance, please kick sadaam in the ass a few times for me.
Sincerely, Landre Tomlinson.
P.S. My daughter said I should capitalize sadaams name but he doesn't deserve the respect.
I am so proud of each and every
one of you for the job you are doing in Iraq!! You ALL are heros!! I pray every
day for God to pour out his blessings on you all and that you will return home
safely. YOU are what America is all about!!
God bless you!!!

Hi, my name is Gail and I hail from San Antonio, Texas.
I just want you to know that you are in my prayers. Please be careful out
there and keep your head low.
My wish is that you will all come back safe and whole. Keep your head on
straight, don't let what you are going through make you crazy. Do what you
have to do and then come home to live your life to it's fullest. You are the
bravest people I know and I am very proud to say that those are my boys &
girls over there fighting to make my home safe.
I know what you are going through is very hard. I know that you have had to
make some hard decisions, don't let the horrors of war get to you.
Remember this is not you doing these things this is our government do what
you have to do and then come home. Don't let it become personal , you are a
part of the government doing what you have to do to keep our country safe.
Don't let it eat away at you the way it did our Vietnam Vets. It helps to
keep in mind that you are a part of our government and you are doing your
duty. Remember that, this is not you, this is the government. That might
help you when you come home and have to start dealing with what you have
done. You are doing your duty and you are the bravest person I know. Be safe
and stay low.
If you know anyone who is having trouble dealing with the situation out
there please pass this e-mail on to them, maybe it will make them feel
better. I hope so.
One more thing, the next time you see a Vietnam Vet stop and shake his hand.
He might be the bum on the street or a vice president of a bank. Keep in
mind that our vets were not appreciated the way ya'll are. We did not help
them deal with the horrors of war. We owe them a lot. Just like we now owe
I was a teenager during the Vietnam War and I have met many Vietnam Vets
when their lives were a mess, because they could not deal with what they
were told to do. They let it become personal. Don't let yourself do that.
Protect yourself from the powers of your mind. This is just government
business and you are doing your job.
Keep up the good work. You are in my prayers every minute of the day.
If you would like to e-mail me my address is firstname.lastname@example.org
