"Dear: America / South korea and the UNIVERSE

When i was 17, i got in trouble and a judge forced me to enter the delay entry program… i pledged allegiance to the United states and swore to defend our great nation from all threats local and foreign / our way of life/ the constitution of united states / right to vote for everyone / fair elections/ freedom of speech and all the good * our founding father left us to enjoy
Shortly after i joined, i realized that what i once believed and learned through out my whole life was all made by 6 publishing co.
All my life, i grew up searching for my real father because my blood father was never there for me.
And that's when my SgtMaj Klans member converse started feeding me dreams of one day having a family of mine and having an American dream.
shortly after i join the marines... We invaded iraq by orchestrating 911.
i was one of the interrogator at abu- grab and when i realized what we were doing i try to alert everyone but no one would believe me… calling me delusional … PTSD…
theres no such thing as PTSD its actually called muscle memory
It was a lie created by big Pharma / remember operation paper clip ? big pharma been conducting MK Ultra on the whole world. after the whistle blower told the world they destroy all evidence ( or thought that they did) and continue their studies

have you ever wondered why theres so many chemicals on almost everything you eat or drink???

in OIF 1 or 2 we had our first KIA LT anklan made me pick up all the dead bodies by myself and later left me there and went the other way ...so i drove the kia with no cover/back up and when i finally got back on base Sgtmaj converse was there by himsef and he couldnt believed that i made back alive. our company XO was calling over the radio but couldn’t answer because i was steering with my left and shooting with my right hand.
Sgtmaj Luke Converse how can you watch your own devil dogs die and leave me there to clean up the mess??? the least you could have done was make sure our heros got recognized for their sacrifices.
my buddy foley was also a cia agent and true American Hero. what did he say right before he got executed ??? AMERICA is my real Killer
Marines of OIF 1 2 3 ... have you guys ever wondered why all the insurgents that we were catching were Somalians or other countries ??? because they were actually hired by the CIA to attack our own.
America WE NEED TO WAKE THE * UP and realized that KKK been running the show since the Hitlers days ... we need to identify and eliminate all evil politicians that are connected to the BUSH family. ( the most evil family that ever existed )
Marines sailors soldiers of the special forces; they been killing all my buddies one by one (SETH LEWIS was the last one) they left me on a OP with no chow and water and when the enemy spot me i hid in sewege and hitchhiker
all the way back to america on a train like a wet back...
and when i came back they told me to go/do whatever i wanted and yrs later told me i was switched at birth and that i was actually a north korean and try to frame me as a north korean spy.
Seal team 6 killed Osama and respected his wishes by dumping him in the ocean right ??? then why did the us gov make the bin ladens plane crash in UK recently and if they really did kill osama why did the us gov kill all the members of seal team six shortly after the operation ???
they set the fire in california and this is the beginning …
please help me pass this message along…

God Bless America and in case your worried …
DO NOT fear because fear is the devils weapon of choice and God always wins.

"The soldiers do not speak. Nevertheless, they are heard in the still houses: who has not heard them? They have a silence that speaks for them at night and when the clock counts. They say: We are young. We have died. Remember us. They say: We have done what we could but until it is finished it is not done. They say: We have given our lives but until it is finished no one can know what our lives gave. They say: Our deaths are not ours: they are yours they will mean what you make them. They say: Weather our lives and our deaths are for peace and a new hope or for nothing we cannot say: it is you who must say this. They say: We leave you our deaths. Give them their meaning. We were young. they say. We have died. Remember us:

I know how much it means to my boys to hear the voices of moms like you who let them know that even when you've lost your precious son, that you will continue to "watch their backs" back here at home... honoring the dedication of your son to the mission of Freedom.
Thank you."

Please know that people do care about you and your pain."
Linda Heminway of Plaistow, NH, USA

"It wasn't until this evening that I became aware of this wonderful sight. The Exeter Baptist Church gave a dinner to honor Dan and we saw messages that were from this site and I thought I would investigate.
How wonderful. Thank you all for your wonderful words and prayers. Its a great comfort to the Healy family.
Danny was a wonderful young man who will be so missed by us but of whom we will forever be proud.
When he broke the news to me that he was going to "Bahrain" I wasn't too happy about it. He noticed my lack of enthusiasm and said, " But Mum, you're supposed to be a Spartan mom." Of course I was concerned since he would be going into harms way. Later, each E mail to Dan I would ask God to bless him and then tell him, " Cover yours and kick theirs, Dan." so he knew I had regained my "Spartan Mom" mindset.

I had been proud of Danny all his life- for many quiet,courageous acts he had done- for the kind and determined way he lead his life and I am in awe of him for all he accomplished.

Danny, I'll miss you forever.

"To Daniel's Family from a grateful and
proud American---

The Spirit of the American Soldier

I am a whisper on the wind
Of times past and places long forgotten
Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Batan, Pearl Harbor, Normandy, Seoul, Saigon, Laos, Kuwait, Iraq

I am the heart of countless numbers:
Scarred and maimed American Veteran
And the soul of the buried unknowns
I am the integral part of each white cross in Flanders Field
And I am sealed within each name on the wall
I am a part of each and every headstone of every American Veteran
In every cemetery around the world

I am deeply enmeshed in every tiny undiscovered bone fragment
Of an American veteran left behind, on foreign soil
I am the unseen shadow, the unheard voice
In those many empty cells, that once held my brothers
In unspeakable torture
I am the unbearable pain in the hearts of every
Mother, Father, Wife, Husband, Brother, Sister, Child
Of missing American Veterans from all wars

I am within each and every teardrop
Shed by family members for their unaccounted loved ones
I am the essence of each and every drop of blood
Shed in the past or in the future
By an American Veteran in the name of Freedom
I am the lifeblood of the colors of the American Flag
Blue for my Loyalty and Dedication
White for my Steadfastness
Red for my Pride and Love of my Country

I am the spirit of each name on the black granite wall
Of all those unaccounted for in every war
Of those who went away to war
Gallant young soldiers and came back older than time
Or Not At All.
The Spirit of the American Soldier
God Bless America
Land of the Free
Home of the Brave

Your husband and father has sown his life for the honor, protection and preservation of our nation. I pray in turn that you will reap a great harvest. Of course Daniel is irreplaceable. But the Lord will not neglect to cover the back of such a valorous hero. I know the Lord gives fruit for what we sow. I pray that He will return a bountiful harvest to you that will sustain your whole family in all the ways a father and husband does. I pray that He will provide you with love, protection, provision, emotional, physical and spiritual comfort. The Lord is an ever present help in times of need. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you, we salute you, we pray for you and we love you."
