I received the following email from my brother in response to one of Friday's entries in this weblog:
Jerry:Let's not forget the price still being paid. We owe these young men and women so much. And yet they ask for so little. I couldn't be more proud of Jon Fuhrman SPC C 2/502, 101st Airborne Division. Thank God Jon and all the men and women in the military are there to protect our children and grandchildren and are prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to make this world a better place.
I liked your piece on "I support the troops but not the war". Believe me I've heard it first hand how the troops feel when they hear this. I got to know several young men of the 101st before they went to war. They have all changed permanently because of their time spent at war. Some just a little and others drastically.
This family will always support the troops in all ways. We know the price they have paid for doing their duty.
