CENTCOM Public Affairs can do Better, thank you.
OK, 1LT Anderson, we haven't heard from you yet.
If you can't find a single one, I guess that proves that there are no members of the Bush clan, Washington neocons' relatives and friends, nor anyone closely connected to Bush Rangers (raised $200,000+) or Bush Pioneers ($100,000-$199,999) now serving in Iraq.
We'll make it easier for you. How about:
Jenna's beau Henry Hager or Presidential nephew Pierce Bush?
Any former interns from the Heritage Foundation who were inspired to enlist?
Anyone closely connected to a prominent media figure (anywhere on the political spectrum) who is an enlisted servicemember or officer at Lieutenant Colonel (O-5) or below in Iraq?
How about a conservative blogger?
Here's what our Commander in Chief said March 18 in his weekly radio address:
More fighting and sacrifice will be required to achieve this victory, and for some, the temptation to retreat and abandon our commitments is strong. Yet there is no peace, there's no honor, and there's no security in retreat. . . . We will finish the mission. . . . And when victory is achieved, our troops will return home with the honor they have earned.
We wonder who, exactly, will be making these sacrifices. Here's what our Commander in Chief said March 19:
Today, as well, marks the third anniversary of the beginning of the liberation of Iraq. And it's a time to reflect. And this morning, our reflections were upon the sacrifices of the men and women who wear our uniform.
Ours is an amazing nation where thousands have volunteered to serve our country. They volunteered to -- many volunteered after 9/11, knowing full well that their time in the military could put them in harm's way.
So, on this third anniversary, the beginning of the liberation of Iraq, I think all Americans should offer thanks to the men and women who wear the uniform, and their families who support them.
I'd like to offer thanks to your family. Should I?
