MTCW: Country Boy Rant Alert!!!!

Warning the following comments are the written expressed rage of the author right off the top of his head... proceed with caution.

This makes my country boy blood boil!!!!
Anti-war merchandise uses names of Iraqi Veteran Killed in Action!!! To include my friend's name!

As most of you know I am an Operation Iraqi Freedom Veteran and I lost a good friend while in Iraq which is probably why this makes my country boy blood boil way over the lid.

It was brought to my attention this morning that there is a real true genuine dirt bag in
Arizona that is selling anti-war merchandise and using the names of fallen soldiers in Iraq.

So I checked it out and sure enough it is true. The above picture can be purchased as a t-shirt, refridgerator magnet, or car magnet and it contains 1,700 names of soldiers killed in action in Iraq including my friend's name Marshall L Edgerton.

Now don't get me wrong here folks. I don't care that this bastard, Dan Frazier, is selling anti-war merchandise. He has the freedom of speech and it is his right to do so. What I do have a problem with is using the names of fallen soldiers to make a dollar and to push a political agenda.

This is not about right or left, conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican. It is not about freedom of speech or anything like that. It is about decency, respect for the dead and the families of the dead. However, I guess some people are lacking in this department.

Marshall should be remembered for who he was. A loving husband and father. A soldier who gave the ulimate sacrafice.

Marshall died as a hero. But not just because he died on the battlefield fighting for his country, but because of the actions he took right before he died.

In the moments before his death, he used every last breath to warn all those around him, because he saw it coming and new he couldn't save himself. He did not choose to coward in fear, but instead chose to sacrifice himself so that others may live.

He saved many lives that day, and will forever be remembered for his courage, and bravery, and for making the ultimate sacrifice for his Country, and for his comrades.

This is what my friend Marshall should be remembered for not as a name on the back of an anti-war t-shirt that he would have had no part of when he was alive!

God Bless you "Edge." There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I am honored to have been able to call you friend.

As far as I am concerned this scumbag who is trying to use Marshal's death to promote his own political agenda shouldn't be allowed to breathe the same air as me...

This a-hole and people like him do not deserve one minute of freedom from the amount of time that has been sacrificed on their behalf.

God help this bastard if I am to die in combat and he attaches my name to some shit like this for my spirit will rise from my dead body and haunt him until the day he dies!!!

Hey man I hardly ever agree with you. I find what you right rather humorous though...

Just wanted to say that I am against the war in Iraq but I would never do what this tool is doing. Disrespecting the memories of the dead to advance a political cause is sickening to me.

May God Bless your friend and all those who have died in service of this country and may we let them rest in peace.
