i've seen it myself

I think I wrote about a scene similar to this one that I witnessed in the Atlanta airport about a year ago. I can't find the post in my archives, (I did find this) but I remember what I saw that day: a bunch of our military guys and gals headed off to Iraq and receiving a standing ovation from the crowd as they passed through the airport.

That was a sight sure to chill the marrow in a leftist, surrender-monkey's bones. In that busy airport, people stopped whatever they were doing and cheered our troops.

We've come a long way from the Vietnam War, whether some people refuse to admit it or not.

I posted it on my blog last year. We had one of our employees oversease for a year, as well as a co-worker's young son.

Feel free to download the movie file. My brother had sent it to me with the note, "We've got to get our kids home."

Joni, that link led me to a "No posts matched your criteria" error page.

Let me upload it to my web site then. &$&#^@%^% ISP! (Oops. Ladies shouldn't swear! But those ladies never had their ISP go batty on them either!)

I was Googling to get some background on this Anheuser-Busch ad campaign. And found this. Of course, anyone can twist anything around to suit his or her own purpose. But I think this blogger completely misses the point of the ad. (Or maybe not.)

Bear in mind, this is just over a year old, posted right after the ad first appeared.

Support Without Being There Is Guilt Before It Is Patriotism

Make of it what you will.
