A Marine's Poem

Doing my small part to send this around the U.S.A.

Much thanks to SaltnLight for sharing this with me via email today!




This is a poem being sent from a Marine to his Dad.
For those who take the time to read it,

you'll see a letter from him to his Dad at the bottom.

It makes you truly thankful

for not only the Marines,

but ALL of our troops.



We all came together,
Both young and old
To fight for our freedom,
To stand and be bold.

In the midst of all evil,
We stand our ground,
And we protect our country
From all terror around

Peace and not war,
Is what some people say.
But I'll give my life,
So you can live the American way.

I give you the right
To talk of your peace.
To stand in your groups,
and protest in our streets.

But still I fight on,
I don't bitch, I don't whine.
I'm just one of the people
Who is doing your time.

I'm harder than nails,
Stronger than any machine.
I'm the immortal soldier,
I'm a U.S. MARINE!

So stand in my shoes,
And leave from your home.
Fight for the people who hate you,
With the protests they've shown.
Fight for the stranger,
Fight for the young.
So they all may have,
The greatest freedom you've won

Fight for the sick,
Fight for the poor
Fight for the cripple,
Who lives next door.

But when your time comes,
Do what I've done.
For if you stand up for freedom,
You'll stand when the fight's done

By: Corporal Aaron M. Gilbert, US Marine Corps

Hey Dad,

Do me a favor and label this "The Marine"

and send it to
everybody on your email list.

Even leave this letter in it.

I want this rolling all over the US;

I want every home reading it.

Every eye seeing it.

And every heart to feel it.

So can you please send this for me?

I would but my email time isn't that long

and I don't have much time anyway.

You know what Dad?

I wondered what it would be like to truly understand

what JFK said in His inaugural speech.

"When the time comes to lay down my life for my country,
I do not cower from this responsibility.

I welcome it."

Well, now I know.

And I do. Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do.

Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife,

and I will miss the birth of our first born child,

I would do it 70 times over to fight for

the place that God has made for my home.

I love you all and I miss you very much.

I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby,

but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing,

I will be coming home soon.

Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too.



Please let this marine (and all our military)

know we care by passing his poem onto your friends

even if you don't usually take time to forward it this time!


If this touched you as much as it touched me,

please forward it on.
Let's help Aaron's dad spread the word ..

someone pays for you and me.

May God Bless You All
(I pray Cindy Sheehan will get a copy.)

Rosie O'Donnell should read it too. I'd post it at her blog if I could.

But no...she still has "Comments off" at her blog. Probably had thousands of protest comments about her stupid conspiracy theories and her pseudo-bleeding heart sympathy for that terrorist who has killed thousands and beheaded Daniel Pearl.

If she wasn't so chicken-sh**, she would re-open comments and face the consequences of her words...

Right now, all she does is dictate to her groupies.

She doesn't have any guts...

And... another thing...

The Rational Side of Earth to Rosie...

WND letter-to-the-editor:

"Tokyo Rosie"

"If Rosie O'Donnell thinks the USA is such an evil place, perhaps she should take her lesbian lover strolling through the Middle East and see how far they get before being stoned or beheaded.

We either defeat them or they murder us, it's that simple."

Bill Hennessy

Thanks are a voice of reason in the bizarro land of Rosie and The Vile (a.k.a. "The View")

Another rational person with some good sense to point out Rosie and her traitor mentality...

"Watchlist Rosie!"

"I think it's about time the U.S. government put Rosie O'Donnell on a terrorist watch list. She's aiding and abetting foreign-born terrorists. Think about it."
