America, Why I Love You, And Will Fight To The Very End For You...

Now for those of you who read me regularly you know that I am a bit crass, a bit unorthodox, and certainly I could give a shit less about propriety so the following is just a little photographic rundown of why I love the United States of America and am willing to dedicate my life to her defense...HERE YOU GO...

First and foremost my beloved Chicago White Sox, World Series Champions in 2005. And...Fuck the Cubs.


Next up is the football team that taught me what being a badass was all about...


And a gratuitous thong picture. Fun for all...

I love babies, and I love beer...especially Rolling Rock.


Just the fact that I am a soldier in a combat zone and I can post stuff like this is a testament to what a great country I am priviledged to defend.


A picture is worth a thousand words...


That's right Bitches...


And finally...

Their Sacrifice

When I was leaving Bagram the other day there was a sign on the wall that simply read...

"Live a life worthy of their sacrifice."

I love you mom...


  1. Thanks for writing your feelings and how you think. Keep up the good work and always be yourself.

  2. the last quote, it's perfect!


  3. Mudpuppy,

    I was ok with the baby and beer
    I was ok with the thong and butt
    I was ok with the broads and boogs,

    But every time I see those two soldiers kneeling and comforting one another I get tears in my eyes.

    Keep you butt close to the ground and your helmet on. I ain't kneeling for you so stay safe and get you arse home with no bumps, bruises or bangs.

  4. Hey Mud Puppy:

    I've been reading - thanks for all you do. You are appreciated!

    Take care - stay out of trouble( ok don't then :) But as abnpoppa says stay low and stay safe!!!

  5. Oops! typo, that's should be broads and BOOBS, guess I lost my train of thought. "magine that and at my age!(:0)

  6. fabulous quote at the end.

    If we're going to talk things that we're all thankful for, mine goes something along the lines of:

    Gator football, margaritas (or beer) + queso, and men in uniform!

    Enjoy your R&R, and just in case your flights bring you back through BWI, be prepared for a hero's welcome:

  7. mudpuppy,

    Like Airmanmom, I love your last quote.

    Be safe. Be strong. You're in my prayers.


  8. We should all live a life worthy of their sacrifice. Love the God/Soldier story!
