This is from my friend Lori Boxer, but I believe it captures what many patriotic Conservative Americans stand for, and how we treat those who protect us.
The Marine pictured standing in dress blues in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees will hold his salute for the entire duration of Rolling Thunder, the recent 9-11 event where 2 million bikers, American patriots all converged on DC. 2 biker-patriots, former Marines stop to give the young Leatherneck support.
One biker provides water to hydrate the young Marine, while the other puts a cold compress on the back of his neck.
As Lori pointed out:
And THIS, my fellow brother and sister patriots, is why I am so DAMN proud to be an American. NO lib could ever, EVER understand what that truly means.
God … I so love this country.
