Great Salute to the Military

“I am in awe at what our military has accomplished in Iraq despite having most of the public and the vast majority of the media totally abandon them. In my view, what has been accomplished there, against all odds, is perhaps the greatest achievement in the history of our military and perhaps any volunteer force in modern times. I certainly love my country, but what it is that inspires men and women to volunteer for military service when the benefits are so sparse and the burdens so great is beyond my comprehension. We are all incredibly lucky to live in a nation that, despite all of its faults, still have enough courageous young people to serve it in ways that allow ‘chicken hawks’ (as the Left loves to describe conservative commentators who never served in the military) to worry about things that in comparison don’t seem all that significant. Thank you for all you do for us. I wish we appreciated you in a way that was nearly as significant as what you deserve.” –radio talk-show host John Ziegler
