If you have some time, take a tour over at Amy Ridenour's site. She usually has interesting posts, always educational, and a few of her recent posts regarding the late Command Sergeant Major Eric Cooke are touching and make you sit a little straighter. I am proud that I come from a country that produced a man like this. There are several posts regarding him, including a letter from Joe Roche, an active-duty soldier she communicates with on a regular basis, which pays homage to this brave soldier, and many others around him. Unlike what many on the left would have you believe, we have honorable men and women who fight and represent the U.S. of A. Thank goodness for bloggers - at least through them, these good people get a little of the recognition they well deserve.
