As I put this up, it shows only a thousand of the 6,026 American servicemen and women who have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. (I'm going to keep adding to it.) There have been no terrorist attacks on the American homeland since 9/11. Al Qaeda is in ruins. Sixty million Muslims and others, previously living in two of the most oppressive and brutal regimes on Earth, are now free.
I thank these guys. Living lives of service, aspiring to and achieving noble and fearsomely difficult deeds, they paid for it with everything they had or ever would have. Click on one.
