    With Deep Regrets!
    Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.
    Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a celebrity drug addict and a thief.
    The same can be said about drug addict Philip Seymour Hoffman who died with a needle stuck in his arm.
    Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian's stupid wedding (and short-lived marriage) was shoved down our throats.
    Let’s not forget the thug Michael Brown that was made an angel by our Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson.

    Justin Allen, 23

    Justus Bartett, 27
    Dave Santos, 21
    Jesse Reed, 26
    Matthew Johnson, 21
    Zachary Fisher, 24
    Brandon King, 23
    Christopher Goeke, 23 and
    Sheldon Tate, 27...
    ...are all Marines who gave their lives last month for you.
    There is no media for them; not even a mention of their names.
    They were young men who most likely came from rural America seeking a chance to better themselves and to serve this country.
    Honor THEM by sending this on to everyone in your address book . I did, will you?
    Rest In Peace, and THANK YOU, TROOPS. MAYGOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

    It is amazing that most (so called Americans)
    don't care to know anything about the men who chose to have the intestinal fortitude to serve their nation.
    For all that serve I call them hero's because they GAS about their country, unlike the celebrity worshipers!!!

    A big SALUTE to you ALL!!!;)

    When was it that the news was keeping tabs, and reporting, on American soldiers killed in action in our recent wars? Wish they'd do that again. People need to see and hear of the ugliness of what war brings!

    Was said that it takes ten to support one.
    No glory for truck drivers...
    Battle of Sangin was 2010, same time as Lt Jeff Clement was there.
    He wrote an enlightening book of his Marines' experience.
    Called "The Lieutenant don't know"
