Outside the wire

Iraq - The President's "Real" Plan

The Pentagon announced TODAY the formation of a new 500-man elite fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces (USRSF)

These CAROLINA boys will be dropped off into Iraq and have been given only the following facts about terrorists :

1. The season opened today.
2. There is no limit.
3. They taste just like chicken.
4. They don't like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus.
5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt.

The Pentagon expects the problem in Iraq to be over by Friday.

TRIBUTE VIDEO FOR THE TROOPS :}



While traveling in Las Cruses NM over the Christmas holiday season, my wife and I visited the local Veterans' Memorial. Verrrrry, verrrrry nice. Las Cruces is a small community about 100 miles west of El Paso . Most of the locals are farmers, merchants and educators (large college there). But there must be a lot of patriotic blood flowing through the people for this memorial is one of the finest I have ever seen. For myself (being a retired Marine) the Marine Corps Memorial is most interesting. It is a three dimensional sphere of "our" eagle, globe and anchor. It was hand made by a retired Marine. It spins in the wind on its three sided axis showing every "clime and place".

Also in the park is a large v-shaped memorial with local names for every war Americans have served. And also a very nice memorial to other branches of services, units and wars including a great piece for the men who were on the Bataan Death March. So if you ever travel down I-10 or I-25, ask a local and take the time to visit the Las Cruces Veterans' Memorial. You'll be glad you stopped.

Greet to TROOPS

ARMAD

Let's keep this one going: email it to everyone you know!

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Thanks for all you do to support those that serve in the military. Thanks also for all of your updates. I do all I can to spread them to others so that we can continue to let our troops know that America supports them. They need to hear that message now more than ever.

Please pass on to all of your contacts that Amateur Radio Military Appreciation Day www.armad.net is an excellent way for our Troops, and Veterans to know that the people of our communities support them. In light of the negative media coverage ARMAD is attempting to spread the word even more that the people from our communities appreciate and support our military members.

We are moving forward this year to reach more communities, and troops with positive messages of support. We are working with the U.S. Army Department of Operation Tribute To Freedom, and other groups such as National Military Appreciation Month, www.nmam.org to reach our troops with "LIVE" messages of thanks and support.

Please keep this email going by passing it to everyone that supports our brave men and women of the miltary. Ask them to contact Amateur Radio Operators in their communites and have them set up for ARMAD - 2007 on May 26, 2007. We want to blow away the media this year with positive support for our troops. ARMAD is provided as a free public service by amateur radio clubs, and operators. Lets spread the word and " Ham It Up For The Troops."
Thank you very much.
