My dad is a military chaplain, and he left two days ago for Iraq to minister to the soldiers. He'll be gone five months. We miss him already, but we're also very proud of him and don't have any doubts that he'll come safely home to us again. smile.gif

So I thought I'd make a thread for our beloved "dogs of the military" and see if there was anyone else who had a friend or family member in the military. If you do, or if you're simply someone who loves your country and supports the troops, welcome! Please tell us all about it and share your thoughts!

One thing though: This thread is NOT for arguing about the war or anything. If you don't agree with the war in Iraq or if you don't like what happens over there, that's okay. I respect that. But please either keep it to yourself or take it to the Debate District. I want this to be a place of support and encouragement, not heated arguments that'll end up going nowhere.

Okay? Are we cool with that? Good. smile.gif

And because we all love FMA, here's something cute I found. It's a US soldier and a little boy in Iraq playing video games. But look closely...

Notice the boy's right arm and left leg? wink.gif (Where's Winry when you need her?) biggrin.gif


Dear pain, it's been a long time.
Remember when you were holding me tight?
I would stay awake with you all night...

Thank you to all the brave men and women who are serving/have served. (: I could never imagine being able to do what our soldiers have done for our country.

My grandfather was in the Korean War, and is still alive today.

My older brother is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force in Afghanistan. My family (including myself) are very proud of him. biggrin.gif He enjoys being in the Air Force. We worry about him over there, but he was making jokes on his facebook page that whoever's shooting at them "suck at aiming". laugh.gif Still, we're always thinking of him and praying for him.

I also have cousins who have served in the Marines and the Navy in Iraq. And they've come home a while ago, safe and sound. smile.gif


C'mon, grab your friends. We'll go to very distant lands.
