But we in it shall be remembered-
    We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
    For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
    Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
    And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
    Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
    And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
St. Crispen's Day Speech ,William Shakespeare, 1599




Frustration sets in by the images and language used by various media outlets concerning our pride resulting from the exemplary job sons and daughters of the United States have accomplished. Are the traditions of the military quickly becoming a ghost from the past?

Various media outlets have blasted the military, portraying our personnel as yesterdays garbage.

What is the real issue?

The attitudes of individuals or groups who claim the Iraq war is a sham use casualties as banners and non-sense to cry foul. Of course, the media relishes fake tears and presents a distorted description on how we are not respected and America has been defeated. Our brave soldiers stand for something far greater than themselves rather than the fictitious realm media portrays. When will we honor our troops by our silencing the trash talk and say "thank you for protecting our freedoms we are accustomed to enjoy"?.

Honor according to the dictionary means an individual or institute that has prestige, high respect, and rank. Have we forgotten these terms? I guess a moment of silence is sufficient but it is not. I hear people and friends who say the military is not doing its job. Winston Churchill mentioned "blood, sweat and tears" to rally the English people. He inspired them to honor cause against the axis power.

Our soldiers are human beings with heart and passion who defend Democracy in and out of the United States of America. They need our encouragement and respect. Their families also need our support as we join to say "we miss you and love you".
