There is NO political statement intended in this post. I would appreciate it if no one makes it into one.
A friend emailed these photos to me.
They affected me very strongly. I thought I would share them.
I believe our troops are as good as there are in the world - both at their job and as people. That they are put into no-win situations is not their fault in the least, and nobody should ever confuse their dislike for whatever politician with the brave and courageous troops who are sent in to do their bidding!
I'm sure considering the environment they are in and what they are seeing and dealing with, those little moments mean a lot to THEM. A little reminder that there is still good to found even in bad circumstances.
