    Instead of using Bootneck for an excuse to rep ho, anyone that wants to wish a British Royal Marine in Afghanistan good luck and God's speed, can do so here.

    If you think reputation points can replace the fear and terror of incoming rounds, then you don't know what the Hell you're talking about.

    Here's to coming back alive.:beer:

    An appropriate place and moment to say it again:

    Thank you to every single American military volunteer, especially to those most at risk.

    You continue to serve America and protect us (and so many of the other people on Earth) and get so damn little in exchange.

    Thank you, with every bit of sincerity.

    And to all of the servicemen and service women in uniform representing our allies, thank you to you, too.

    Bootneck is in my daily prayers, along with all that serve the cause of freedom. They pay the price that the main can't or won't. It's a debt that we cannot repay, only appreciate. BTW, it's also imperative that those that can, support their dependents emotionally and financially.

    Thank you, Bootneck and all who serve.

    I object to the closing of the thread on repping Boots.

    Of course rep isn't important, but in this case it is just expressing good wishes toward Bootneck.

    O Eternal Lord God,who through many generations hast united and inspired the members of our Corps,

    grant thy blessings we beseech thee,on Royal Marines serving all round the globe.

    Bestow Thy crown of righteousness upon all our efforts and endevours,

    and may our laurels be those of gallantry and honour, loyalty and courage.

    We ask these in the Name of Him whose courage never failed,

    our redeemer Jesus Christ.

    Godspeed Marines.
