Wednesday Hero

I am running a bit behind getting to work but wanted to get these two posts up before I left.
This Weeks Hero Was Suggested By Mary Ann

Spc. Jeffrey Jamaleldine

Spc. Jeffrey Jamaleldine
Company C, 1st Battalion, 77th Armor

“How can I say to my sons, stand up for something, fight for what you think is right, if I don’t do anything myself?”
The Jeffrey Jamaleldine that you speak to today is a complete 180 from the Jeffrey Jamaleldine that you would have spoke to in the past. In 1991, Jamaleldin was living in Germany when joined in anti-American protests on Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm boulevard during Operation Desert Storm. “That was the way it was back then,” he says. He was 15 and “America was simply the enemy.” And today, Jeffery Jamaleldine is a wounded veteran of the U.S. Army. On June 6, 2005, after the terror bombing in Madrid, Spain, in the middle of the Iraq war, he showed up at the U.S. Army recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas, to enlist. His father, Bashir, told him at the time: “Son, this won’t be a picnic.”
On June 30, Jamaleldine was on patrol in Ramadi, Iraq. The patrol ahead of him had been ambushed by at least 70 combatants and were now under fire. During the fight, Spc. Jeffrey Jamaleldine was hit in the face by a bullet. In the end, the battle lasted into the next morning and the soldiers were able to stop the enemy from returning to Ramadi.
The article on Spc. Jeffrey Jamaleldine is five pages long, and I simply can not condense it down to only a few paragraphs. You can read the entire story here.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived</font SIZE></font COLOR>

  • His Teachers Confirmed Obama Was a Registered Musl

    It really shouldn’t matter to Americans that Barry Soetoro (aka: Barack Obama) was once registered as a Muslim when he was a mere child living in Indonesia. So why is his campaign still going out of its way to dispel the truth???

    I have almost always been fiercely pro-life in my views.  I can’t see any good reason for a woman to have an abortion and would like to see this horrendous practice banished from the face of the earth.  So yesterday, when I saw the headline abo…
