The Toll Road, The Right To Bear Arms, The Alcohol Ban, Free Speech, Gay Marriage, The Point, The Dirt Road
It's a privilege to be here in the USA, free to discuss and debate these issues, and others. As we celebrate our independence and the founding of our republic, I am mindful that this privilege is secured each day by men and women serving in our military.
I saw this picture of a U.S. Marine, from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, who was caught, without his helmet, by Taliban fire in Afghanistan on May 18, 2008. Obviously, he did not hesitate to stand up with the others in his squad and return fire. It reminded me of the sacrifices that those serving in our military make for all our citizens.
He was not hit and is okay.
