Not just a number

As a proto-Marine, I have some angry words for the way the mainstream media and anti-war protesters have handled the war dead. I am not alone: Taking a Number

The Marines and soldiers who fight in Iraq are not numbers, but the media and certain groups are treating them as if they were. Number 2,000 was a national treasure, just as number 1,435 was and number 2,038 will be. For what is the value of a man who will fight a war for others who despise him?

But for those who are willing to take action, there would be no wall at all hold back evil and those men and women on the wall deserve more than a number.

Read it all. Then say a prayer for those who have given thier lives for our country.

Recall what happened to the Mother of the 1000th soldier to die?
Now that the Peace(?) activists are gearing up for their 2000th fatality vigil, it might not be a bad idea for me to bring forward what happened when they celebratred the 1000th Soldier to die,
Or rather
