I have a real soft spot for Marines. When I saw this request in Grim's interview of Col Simcock of Regimental Combat Team 6 at Blackfive, I had to pass it on.

GRIM: Is there anything that you and your Marines need that we could send you?

COL. SIMCOCK: (Chuckles.) I'll tell you what, the one thing that all Marines want to know about -- and that includes me and everyone within Regimental Combat Team 6 -- we want to know that the American public are behind us. We believe that the actions that we're taking over here are very, very important to America. We're fighting a group of people that, if they could, would take away the freedoms that America enjoys.

If anyone -- you know, just sit down, jot us -- throw us an e- mail, write us a letter, let us know that the American public are behind us. Because we watch the news just like everyone else. It's broadcast over here in our chow halls and the weight rooms, and we watch that stuff, and we're a little bit concerned sometimes that America really doesn't know what's going on over here, and we get sometimes concerns that the American public isn't behind us and doesn't see the importance of what's going on. So that's something I think that all Marines, soldiers and sailors would like to hear from back home, that in fact, yes, they think what we're doing over here is important and they are in fact behind us.

It sure proves that the liberals hurt our cause of protecting the innocent and freedom for everyone in the world (no matter what their nationality) when they lie about our President and that fighting terrorism in Iraq is a mistake....

What is their mission?
I know they can use bottled water...body protection..motor vehicles that can sustain IED'S (seriously..cannot our technology and industry meet this need?) The majority of our nation has rightfully lost faith in the commander-in-chief...I respect the intelligence of our armed forces to recognize the difference between those of us that want them back safe and whole and the just wait six more months illusion..by the way as someone who has served in the Middle East..picture walking around Phoenix with full combat gear...that is what they are doing now ....we cannot pretend...the grunts know futility when they experience it..they always have...they always will... the best way to support them is to end deployment over 12 months...end stop loss...train and fully arm and protect them...give those wounded FULL medical support when they return...that is the support they need...

NOGO, it is people like you that demoralize the troops in the guise of supporting them. I know their mission and they know it. So, you are against their mission but do not know what it is? Typical, hypocritical liberal. And you want me to believe you served? ww

This is this particular Marine's request. You have your views. What do you not respect about this particular individual's views and request for support to that end????
