Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

An AmericaN SoldieR



Marine.
Airman.
Sailor.
Coast Guard.
An American Soldier.


They stand tall, take an oath and Swear, "To protect and serve."
Yet some of us feel they never quite get the praise that they deserve.

Some of us speak up for the American Soldier, one of the most generous and possibly the least appreciated person on all the earth.

This is my attempt in a small way to pay a tiny bit of what we owe. Make people stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who sacrifice themselves for us.
Some whose fates are still unknown and some- still waiting, to come home.


As some of my buddies know, I have had the blessing to work with soldiers returning from Iraq as well as their families. Make no mistake, my friends, we stand now at a critical moment in the history of our civilization, beset by enemies who irrationally embrace their own destruction along with ours...and yet our fate lies in the hands of the American soldier.


As some of you know Blue Star Chronicles dedicate themselves to honor and even whip up local support for our men and women in the United States Armed Forces.

Let's give them some 'muscle' shall we.

    Well said Angel. I wonder what is going on in our nation when we have to "Whip up" support for our soldiers. That should be an automatic action from every American.

    it is about time we stand up and salute the men of the armed forces, dying to assure us here in the U.S. of A the right to express ourselves as we see fit...
