The Green Green Grass Of Home

Video Sharing at DropShots.com

With the onset of Operation Swarmer, continued violence in Iraq, and troubles brewing in yet other foreign countries, it continues to remind us how we wish these times of war did not have to happen. It also reminds me that without the brave men and women that serve our country, we would have no more freedom to fight for.

I received this touching story, and wanted to share. The photo above is of an average soldier in Iraq, stationed in the world’s largest sandbox. He asked his wife to send him some US soil, fertilizer, and grass seed so that he could plant some grass and smell the sweet aroma of the green, green grass of home. His piece of heaven in his sand box outside his tent continues to remind him of home and what he is fighting for.

When the men and women of his squadron go out on a mission, they all walk across his USA lawn, stepping on American soil for good luck.

I wish all our service men and women blessings and good fortune during these hard times, and the third anniversary of our war. Keep the fight, and God Speed.
