I got this in a email (for Veterens Day) from from of my Democrat hating family members. It looks bogus to me because if I wrote something like this I would have signed my name to it.

A MARINE IN IRAQ RESPONDS TO SEN. KERRY

{This was written by my husband, Aaron, who is currently deployed to Iraq, in defense of a recent comment made by Senator John Kerry. Pass it along, it might inspire someone else to speak up! ~ Michelle}

Yesterday John Kerry said, "You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well, and if you don't, you get stuck in Iraq...

So I wrote him a letter:

I am a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I am currently on my second tour in Iraq, a tour in which I volunteered for. I speak Arabic and Spanish and I plan to tackle Persian Farsi soon. I have a Bachelors and an Associates Degree and between deployments I am pursuing an M.B.A. In college I was a member of several academic honor societies, including the Golden Key Honor Society. I am not unique among the enlisted troops. Many of my enlisted colleagues include lawyers, teachers, mechanics, engineers, musicians and artists just to name a few. You say that your comments were directed towards the President and not us. If we were stupid Senator Kerry, we might have believed you.

I am not a victim of President Bush. I proudly serve him because he is my Commander and Chief. If it was you who was President, I would serve you just as faithfully. I serve America Senator Kerry, and I am also providing a service to the good people of Iraq. I have not terrorized them in the middle of the night, raped them or murdered them as you have accused me of before. I am doing my part to help them rebuild. My role is a simple one, but important. You see Senator Kerry, like it or not, we came here and removed a tyrant (who terrorized Iraqis in the middle of the night, and raped them and murdered them). And we have a responsibility to see to it that another one doesn't take his place. The people of Iraq are recovering from an abusive relationship with a terrible government and its going to take some time to help them recover from that. We can't treat this conflict like a microwave dinner and throw a temper tantrum because we feel like its taking too long.

Senator Kerry, you don't have to agree with this war. You don't have to say nice things about those of us who choose to make sacrifices for the rights of every American rather than sit back and simply feel entitled to it. But please Senator Kerry, if you're going to call me a stupid murdering rapist, stick by what you say. Don't tell me that I misunderstood or that you would never insult a veteran because you are one too. Having been there and done that does not give you a free pass to insult me.

My suggestion for you, Senator Kerry, is to remember that your speeches are recorded, and broadcast to us simpletons over here. You may want to write down what you want to say before you say it, maybe have somebody look at it before you say it and tell you what others might hear. Remember that we can't read your mind, if there are any misinterpretations in what you say, it's because you didn't communicate clearly.

Good luck to you Senator Kerry, if nothing else it's always entertaining to watch you try and climb out of the holes that you constantly dig for yourself.

Sincerely,
Somebody who is watching his daughter grow up in photographs so that you can have the right to say whatever you want about him

Regardless of its authenticity, sadie, it's still just an opinion piece. snopes.com will eventually check it out if it becomes famous enough. You're right about the lack of a signature...that always sends up a warning flag for me.

Maybe your democrat-hating family should be sent this link in reply.

I met Stan and Ron many, many years ago. Almost to long ago to remember. Both good people and I trust what they both say.

to the alleged soldier who supposedly wrote that piece and this part:

Sincerely,
Somebody who is watching his daughter grow up in photographs so that you can have the right to say whatever you want about him


who the fuck are you trying to kid? obviously only yourself, because you having your ass shot at in iraq at this time isn't in any way, shape or form "defending my rights to say whatever i want". in case you aren't aware, no one in iraq has, at any time, threatened my existance, nor my freedoms as an american. just because you were brainwashed into thinking that some rag tag ill equiped, badly beaten army was going to somehow paddle over to america in canoes and attack us, it doesn't mean i'm going to be that fucking ignorant.

you, however, as a volunteer soldier, or rather as a "paid mercenary" must follow orders and do what you are told to do. that isn't my fault that some asshole president told you to run off and kill or be killed. however, if by you thinking you are "defending my freedoms" makes you feel better for being duped, then so be it.

so, by all means, explain to me how you fighting in iraq is "protecting my freedoms"??

sincerely,

mga
