Lest we forget why we can be thankful, on this most “Turkey-est” of Days…

24 Nov

It’s pretty simple, really;

Many of us either come from Military families or we ARE active or EX-Military personnel.

While we sit here eating turkey and watching football…

Many of these Patriots, brave men and women of our Armed Services are in harms way, instead of being at home with their own families.

Many of them chose this – to be counted by standing up for the way of life that we all cherish in spite of  “those around them”.

When I lay my head down at night, I am thankful for all of our servicemen and servicewomen…

… realizing that we are only able to lay our heads down on our pillows safely at night because of the work that these brave Warriors do.

Here at RR (and The Bubba Effect) we’re working on a mission;

We’re insuring that these Warriors get a little message from home, so that they KNOW how very proud of them we are.

In one particular case, we’re going to literally “Rock his World” in spite of some who would actually like to see us fail. Wait and see...

Here is the “real” deal:

  • Thousands of America’s Warriors are in harms way on the battlefield instead of home with their families.
  • We are able to enjoy the freedoms of life here in America – with our families –  because of the sacrifices that our men and women in uniform have made.
  • We need to show our support for all our brave men and women in uniform and let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers.

I don’t care if you’re FOR or AGAINST the War, you have to respect the Men and Women that pledge their own lives to allow us to run off at the mouth on Internet blogs, safe behind our monitors, while they flap from the handlebars in rough, cold places…

And if you don’t respect that…

Well then you need to be somewhere other than around ME.

Happy Thanksgiving!

God bless all of them… and you.

Semper Fi.
