troop letter: US MARINES
September 24, 2009
Thanks for your offer and all of your support!! God Bless you and America!!! That’s why we are here for Americans like you and everyone that loves the greatest country in the world . We are due to return in Nov. and I can honestly say my Marines have made a difference; courage beyond words. I have never seen young men so ready to make the ultimate sacrifice for what they believe in. We have had a couple causalities but they continue to march forward and they don’t understand the meaning of retreat. They are just an outstanding group of young men trying to make a difference. They have shown so much courage. I know this is what we are trained to do but when I sit up at night and wonder how I was so blessed to be given this opportunity; it sometime brings me to tears. I wish you could see them in action. There is no organization in the world that gives so much and ask for so little. From a proud 1stSgt of US MARINES. God Bless and thanks for your time.
