During the great Iraq/Afghanistan wars Ramirez’s hero president George W. Bush banned reporters from taking pictures of said draped caskets returning from the battlefield. How ironic Mr. Ramirez should show one.
To those who gave the ultimate price for their country….thank you! Heroes!
Thank you to all who served. And those who sleep in peace through the sacrifices of others, thank a vet tomorrow.
Shakespeare had something there…..
“From this day to the ending of the world,But we in it shall be rememberèd—We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;For he to-day that sheds his blood with meShall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,This day shall gentle his condition;And gentlemen in England now a-bedShall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaksThat fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.”
(Let the trolling begin.)
It is sad to see soldiers’ lives being sacrificed when the U.S. sends them into situations when liberty is not at stake.
I flown flag draped coffins “home” to Dover AFB. The hardest part was standing at attention, listening to the sobbing families outside the airplane, and not joining them.
God bless our troops. God damn the war hawks that cavalierly sacrifice the lives of our troops to carry out their political goals.
. . . Some gave All.
Thanks Michael, nicely done ♥
Republicans do love dead soldiers. Almost as much as the money their GOP leaders make instigating conflicts and selling weapons.
What dribble, but no surprise
