The quote of the year...

...was overheard on the Laura Ingraham radio show. She had a Marine sergeant from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group in Western Iraq on the phone. And he had to make the greatest statement of the year...

On missing Christmas with his wife and 5-year-old daughter:

"Tell every one that Santa is wearing desert cammies and delivering freedom to Iraq this Christmas."

Chin up guys, the nasayers and doubters are sometimes louder, but they are never stronger. I had to pull over to the side of the road and wipe the tears out of my eyes.

That is a great line! I absolutely love the spirit of our warfighters. Despite being far from home, and missing their families and friends, not to mention the ugly press stories that abound - and these guys and gals have such a positive outlook!
