Here is the link........long letter but very worth the time.www.unc.edu/depts/diplomat/archives_roll/2004_04-06/letters_front/letters_front.html A few salient points from the letter which was written by Trampes C. Crow Captain, United States Army.....June 21, 2004 I thought it would be appropriate to send a message from those of us who are fighting that same fight now to those of you back home. In particular I'd like to send this message to any and everyone of you who over the past eighteen months or so has relayed a sentiment that has become more or less accepted in the American political dialogue, yet has never really made sense to those of us whom the sentiment is usually directed, that is "I support the troops, but I don't support the war" and has been repeated adnaseum by a large cross section of Americans who disagree with the current administration and it's foreign policy. " I, along with many others, find this idea of support for the man yet not the mission to be disingenous and hypocritical". Waging this war on teror is not some disease, habit, or character flaw that you can choose to dislike while liking the soldier. This endeavor is something we have volunteered freely to undertake. Our goal is and always has been to preserve the American way of life. This mission in Iraq is an activity toward that end. We wake up, literally, each day with the possibility that we may not see that day's end. We beleive that stabilizing this country is worthwhile. It would make our jobs lot easier if you did too.
