    Today 31 U.S. Servicemen lost their lives in afghanistan, some might say this isnt fitting here, but honestly UPS wouldn't exist if it weren't for those who fight for our freedom. My love goes out to their families, and their children, these individuals make some hard sacrifices, being away from home is a tough feeling in your gut, dying so far away from home can only be worse I imagine. RIP Shipmates. :sad-little:

    It is never out of place to respect and honor those that have given all.

    A tribute to the 31 US troops that were KIA in Afghanistan, when their helicopter crashed.

    As an American, all I can muster up behind the tears is a *SALUTE*

    RIP... ;-(

    (Someone cares. I was young but my brother was a Vietnam vet, and I cared)
    RIP brave ones. Thanks to all for their service. May they all come home soon.

    I can tell you faded jeans, I cared then and I care today. Although I never served (for various reasons) , I have always had a deep and sincere regard for our military troops, past and present.

    Thanks but he is not he passed away of a heart attack 3 yrs ago.
    My other brother is still here. he also served, and my son 12 yrs in the USAF.
    I can still remember 3 channels on the b&w TV, and my parents watching the 1/2 hr of news every night, and praying that their first born made it through, it was a terrible time for the parents, as well as the soldiers.
