SlagleRock's Slaughterhouse
Don't be a fool and die for your country. Let the other sonofabitch die for his.

"Wish You Were Here"

For all the free people that still protest.
You're welcome. We protect you and you are protected by the best.
Your voice is strong and loud,
but who will fight for you? No one standing in your crowd.
We are your fathers, brothers, and sons,
wearing the boots and carrying guns.
We are the ones that leave all we own, to make sure your future is carved in stone.
We are the ones who fight and die,
We might not be able to save the world, Well, at least we try.
We walked the paths to where we are at
and we want no choice other than that.
So when you rally your group to complain,
take alook in the back of your brain.
In order for that flag you love to fly
wars must be fought and young men must die.
We came here to fight for the ones we hold dear.
If that's not respected, we would rather stay here.
So please stop yelling, put down your signs,
and pray for those behind enemy lines.
When the conflict is over and all is well,
be thankful that we chose to go through hell.

Written by Corporal Joshua Miles and all the boys from 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines, Kuwait

Darn, can't find your email Sir, so I have to post this here:

Today is a Support the Troops action day!

Time to contact your Congress-critter and tell them to vote for HEROES Act!

"The Honoring Every Requirement of Exemplary Service (HEROES) Act, which Senators Lieberman and Sessions will introduce when Congress reconvenes January 24 2005, would increase the maximum life insurance coverage for servicemembers to $400,000 and increase the death gratuity paid to families of servicemembers killed in combat to $100,000.

These benefit changes would cover all servicemembers regardless of rank, and would apply retroactively to cover those lost in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom."

This bill must pass and you can help.

Contact your Congress-critter and bug the living heck out of them!!!!

Do It!!!!!

I love this poem.....!....I think we should all lissen to the soldiers over seas because they are the one's fighting ..."not us" ....if we wanted to do something for this war or have some say in the war then I say, we should go over and fight it ourselves! Freedom ""isn't"" Free!!!!
Thank you corporal Joshua Miles and all the boys from 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines, kuwait...we (and I) support you for what you are doing for our country!! and ""all"" the troops over seas!! (I support you) THANK YOU!!
