Thumbs up Report from 2/2 Marines "Warlords" That's Right America!"

That's Right America!

Your Marines continue to kick butt. Iím enjoying a nice La Gloria, Series ďRĒnumber 7 stoag as I write this and the enemy is trying to figure what has hit them. Not only are the bad guys in a hurt locker but they canít regain the momentum from our latest efforts against them.

Not only did we overwhelm them with our firepower, but we left a trail of civil affair contracts and area improvement actions behind as we pushed the bad guys back to the extent that they can't recover. Itís very difficult for the bad guys to match us toe to toe (non existent) nor can they inflict intimidation tactics against innocent locals when we are always in the area and show how we are here to make a difference and even more importantly the locals see it too. The Marine's morale is high as itís hard not to have positive attitudes when you get to kick the crap out of the enemy and make an instant impact in an area that was once shadowed by scumbags.

Your young warriors continue to impress as they take the fight to the enemy. Along with our efforts, the locals have continued to stand up against insurgents and inform us of the locations of IEDs and identify ďoutsidersĒ that donít belong. This is a huge growth as now the people here are getting a belly full of the intimidation and threats and are beginning to push back. That was the case as a local farmer that was ordered to grow his own crops and sell them to the enemy for dirt cheap prices. The bad guy came to the farmer and told him these were his crops now as they were matured and that he would work them for the enemy. The farmer shot the bad guy in self defense as the bad guy was going to kill him if he didnít do as he said. This is huge! The locals are showing how they arenít afraid of the big bad scary insurgents. Helps to have a Marine patrol coming through often though too.

With your continued support for us, we take that support and defend the innocent and chase the ugly. Thanks for that, you are making a difference and donít even know it, but you truly are.

Heloís are inbound. Time to finish this cigar and get back to work, Keep attacking, America. We are.

Semper Fidelis

Thanks Sis and thank goodness times have changed. Wasn't home from Vietnam two days before people were asking me how many babies I had killed there. Proud of my generation that helped build the public support for our troops today.
