Has anyone turned on the news today? The 101st Airborne Division is lauching a major offensive in Iraq right now, both by air and by land and it's the largest offensive since 2003.


Regardless of your personal opinions on the war, please keep these men and women in your thoughts and prayers.


Go, Screamin' Eagles! Get some!

Wow, those guys have it tough in Afghanistan. We have a few friends working in a "quiet capacity" around the country and they said the 10th Mountain is a great group of folks.

Fingers crossed for them.

Thinking about everyone overseas....
My dad was in Kuwait for a year 2003-2004. I feel for those families who are missing their loved ones right now.
