  2. Proud Mom of a Mighty Oak

    I was so excited to see a picture of our son on Face Book. He had a tray full of awesome looking food.
    I prayed over our son to grow from a sapling into the Mighty Oak God made him to be. To up hold with honesty and integrity the teachings he has learned as a child at God's feet.
    Thank you Father for giving us such a wonderful gift. He is a blessing to us and to all who know him. I am proud to call him our son. Please continue to surround Michael and his brothers within his unit with mighty Angels armed with flaming swords.
    I don't care about ignorant statements. They will not sway my feelings for my God, my son and for his brothers.
    Know, each and every one of you that you are being prayed for. I have your names and they are being spoken out loud.
    Stay safe and return to us.
    I don't agree with the reason we are STILL out there and I don't care about the politics, just stay safe.

      Actually we have no good reason to be there except to fill the coffers of these war profiteers and get more Republicans and "blue-dog" Democrats elected to office!

      Will you quit spewing your right-wing mumbo-jumbo under my name? It tends to make me look stupid and I want that mcmurdo broad to know that I'm not that ignorant.

    Would be a real Thanksgiving treat were we to bring the troop home immediately rather than waste even one more life on this unwinnable stupid war

      Is that really what you think Pat. So you think we should just leave a country completely unstable and bail on them like the Russians did. We have witnessed what happens when a country is under no law. And as far as WASTING lives not one of my friends that have died in combat have wasted there lives. They died doing what there country told them to do and more importantly they died for the people on there left and right. I think its totally disrespectful that you would say they wasted there lives. As far as i concerned they did more in there lifetimes then you ever will.
