July 4th 2013 I want to dedicate these songs to my handsome, wonderful, brave, loyal, beautiful, giving, sweet darling brother, a former Recon Marine.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.

Happy July 4th Let's thank our vets -- all of them

On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind.

-------Dan Lipinski

Any soldier worth his salt should be antiwar. And still there are things worth fighting for.

------------Norman Schwarzkopf

Although a soldier by profession, I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, and I have never advocated it, except as a means of peace.

---------Ulysses S. Grant

The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.

---------Stonewall Jackson

Every lover is a soldier.

---------Ovid

"I have never met anyone who did not support our troops. Sometimes, however, we hear accusations that someone or some group does not support the men and women serving in our Armed Forces. But this is pure demagoguery, and it is intellectually dishonest."
