The Commitment of Our Servicemen

I imagine most people did not hear about this at the time. The liberal dominated press hates reporting any good news from Iraq. They would like us to believe that it was wrong and somehow a violation of international law for the U.S. to invade the sovereign country of Iraq. Well, it seems that the troops deployed there do not share the same sentiments. Last year on July 4th, 588 American service members re-enlisted in Baghdad. This year, in the largest re-enlistment ceremony in the history of the US military, 1,215 soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines extended their military service. The ceremony was held July 4, 2008 at Al Faw Palace, Baghdad, Iraq. General Petraeus officiated. A pizzeria in Chicago donated 2000 pizzas that were shipped to Iraq and fed to the enlistees on the 4th. The media reported the donation of the 2000 pizzas, but neglected to mention what they were for. It would appear that the efforts by many self serving Dems and the liberal media has not been successful in deterring the commitment of our brave servicemen who have put their personal lives on hold to serve the country that they love.

Our service men and women know what is at stake in Iraq and the need for America to win the war on terror. To all these men and women I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service to our country. We owe you a debt that we cannot repay.

The thought that the media would report the donation of pizza to the troops (suggesting "oh, poor troops, they need to eat something good and our catering can't provide that so Chicago had to send them foood!...they need to come home!")but not mention that they were shipped to celebrate reenlistments, is SO typical and so damaging to Americans who only hear half the truth.

Thanks for posting this... I WISH some American would really speak up and demand the media show ALL the truth..in PUBLIC!!
