Some of you may drop down to the "Military Section" once in a while. If you do you may know that I try to send a "care Package" to the guys over in the sand box as I can. Well not long ago Nathan (RollingThunder) and I both sent one about the same time.
One of our members here "BUDAKANE" (Sgt Anthony Robbins) received our packages. Today I got the greatest reward anyone can get form an awesome bunch of guys doing a job that no one wants.
There has never been a doubt in my mind about our military. They give more than most and as the saying goes, "some give all". These guys out in the rocky, dusty hell hole took the time to send us some "Thank you" shirts and other goodies. I'm going to share them with you and hope that you too will appreciate what these guys do for us and our country on a daily basis. I'm not taking the time to post these to Photobucket so I'll just post several pictures in separate post.

First the shirt....signed by the guys. With patches they sent...I just stuck them on an open spot.

The quality of the picture may not be great, but the quality of the people is unsurpassed.

I love the caption on this one!

And yes I might should have posted this in the "Military Section", but I wanted everyone here to know what kind of people we have serving our country. They just don't come any better.
God bless America, and our Troops!!!!!!!

BTW.....love the sunglasses.

I know many of you have served, and some of you may not have been appreciated.
Let's not let today's troops think that the mouthy few represent the majority of Americans. Say "Thanks you" when you can and support them in every way.

Rancher forgot one thing they sent us.

A pair of "Balistic Glasses". They have interchangable lens ( green and clear). Sure are great.

Those folks deserve recognition from the American people for the tough job they are having to do under the most adverse conditions. Going by their names, I think four of them are ladies. I could be wrong but I don't think so.

DON'T YOU FORGET THEM !
