Letters from the front
From Sgt. Hook via Mudville, a letter from a 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Sergeant (1st Platoon) that should be forwarded to Congressman Murtha's office.
I'll give you a few excerpts from the letter, however it is lengthy so I recommend you go to Sgt. Hook and read the whole thing.
My fellow Americans, I have a task for those with the courage and fortitude to take it. I have a message that needs not fall on deaf ears. A vision the blind need to see. I am not a political man nor one with great wisdom. I am just a soldier who finds himself helping rebuild a country that he helped liberate a couple years ago.Sergeant, when you get through drinking a few of Hook's cold ones, look me up. The next ones are on me.
I have watched on television how the American public questions why their mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters are fighting and dying in a country 9000 miles away from their own soil. Take the word of a soldier, for that is all I am, that our cause is a noble one. The reason we are here is one worth fighting for. A cause that has been the most costly and sought after cause in our small span of existence on our little planet. Bought in blood and paid for by those brave enough to give the ultimate sacrifice to obtain it. A right that is given to every man, woman, and child I believe by God. I am talking of freedom.
