Honoring Marine Capt. Joshua S. Meadows who selflessly sacrificed his life five years ago ON (Sept. 05, 2009), today in Afghanistan for our great Country. Please help me honor him so that he is not forgotten.

The A-10 is my favorite of our close air support aircraft. I think it’s the unique sound of the gatlan firing 50 mm rounds that travel faster than the speed of sound.

Many of our love ones are off to war They leave us behind for distance shores They seek out our enemies to even the score But some of them we may never see once more
We give them our thanks and pray each day For God to watch over them while they are away We known they will do their duty for they are brave To fight those who would make of us their slave
It is the Armed Forces who fight to keep us free For they are willing to die for you and me They will do their duty until victory is achieved Only then will they be allowed to grieve
They are my heroes, so young, so brave and true Fighting to protect our flag, the red, white and blue It is through them the American Spirit is renewed And recognition for their sacrifices is long overdue
