Marines die in Iraq

As a former member of the Marine Corps, stories like the death of up to 12 Marines in Iraq are close to my heart. While I mourn their deaths, I’m grateful for their sacrifice. Their sacrifice shows that they are making and have made America safer.

How? Our enemies are busy engaging our forces overseas. Notice terrorist bullets aren’t flying here. Iran is backing the thug in Iraq. That is where their resources are going.

Al Qaeda is trying to infiltrate the Iraqi population. The fact that they are fighting our troops in Iraq means I can sleep safe here at home. Our Marines and Soldiers are in harm’s way there to keep us safe here…and it’s working.

God bless the Marine Corps.
