    This is a copy of an email I received....think about this while you mow....

    Soldier in Iraq with his tiny 'plot' of grass in front of his tent. Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil -- to bring them good luck. :usflag:

    At first glance I thought it was John Cena. The ol' sayin' that "absence makes the heart grow fonder" is never more true when so far from home. Army all day!!!!! Hoooah!!!

    i think its a great reminder as to what "we" or what "he" does or did for a living everyday.....day in day out, but thus far i haven't seen a post from someone that has realized the real reason that he is a war or the fact that we do "not" have a draft going on....our soldiers are to be more that well respected as which they always have been but hey....until that day god bless the usa for freedom of choice because i know damn well i will not sacrifice my life tomorrow for something that i personally do not belive is not worth fighting for....much respect and i honestly hope the best...:usflag:
