It’s been a long time coming.A lot of blood..a lot of grief, the crackle of weapons fire, faces..names..videos of deaths that have sickened even the most hardened of men, creating a visceral, gut tearing hate and white hot rage.

They sought to sow seeds of terror and destruction..they were answered in soldier’s coin, one by one, the 3rd Cavalry hunted them down and wiped them out..or engaged them in battle and forced them to flee, like the craven, cowardly heartless scum that they are.

In the heat of the desert sun, over the roar of the engines, the hum of the radios..the tramp of weary feet in the streets of Baghdad, Ramadi, Al Anbar, Fallujah….over them all comes a triumphant call to victory.

A lined, weatherbeaten face, worn down by years of sandstorms, grief, fear, terror…and finally, he lifts his eyes unto God and exuberantly cries with joy.

CAN YOU HEAR HIM, O MIGHTY WARRIOR?

Hear him, ye fierce of heart..and know that your loved ones, and many you never know, are bursting with pride, our eyes filled with tears of elation,you are so far, far away…and our gratitude and love knows no limits.

Here is the sound of victory, here is what you have worked so hard for,..what you have fought for..bled for..died for…

This is why we fight.

In the Name of God the Compassionate and Merciful

To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall’ Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.

To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.

To those who spread smiles on the faces of our children, and gave us restored hope, through their personal sacrifice and brave fighting, and gave new life to the city after hopelessness darkened our days, and stole our confidence in our ability to reestablish our city.

Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city.

Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi’s followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them.

I have met many soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment; they are not only courageous men and women, but avenging angels sent by The God Himself to fight the evil of terrorism.

The leaders of this Regiment; COL McMaster, COL Armstrong, LTC Hickey, LTC Gibson, and LTC Reilly embody courage, strength, vision and wisdom. Officers and soldiers alike bristle with the confidence and character of knights in a bygone era. The mission they have accomplished, by means of a unique military operation, stands among the finest military feats to date in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and truly deserves to be studied in military science. This military operation was clean, with little collateral damage, despite the ferocity of the enemy. With the skill and precision of surgeons they dealt with the terrorist cancers in the city without causing unnecessary damage.

God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and in every flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.

Finally, no matter how much I write or speak about this brave Regiment, I haven’t the words to describe the courage of its officers and soldiers. I pray to God to grant happiness and health to these legendary heroes and their brave families.

    I agree. This should be front page news worldwide if everyone/anyone was truly serious about combatting the evils of Islamofascism. May God bless these soldiers who inspired someone such as this mayor to write a letter of appreciation!!!

    Simple! The MSM would not want to annoy their good friends the insurgents with news like that, now would they!? It would be admitting that your troops are getting the better hand against their buddies the hajis… Since they give the insurgents a political voice, that kind of announcement would go against the MSM’s principle of siding with the ennemy.

    I wonder what the leftists crybabies would make of this..?

    3rd ACR, and Colonel HR McMaster, he’s a hero from the first Gulf War. He led Eagle Troop of the 2nd ACR in the Battle of 73 Easting. I was a project manager on a project that built a VR re-creation of that battle for the U.S. Army War College. I got to meet (then) Captain Mc Master at one of the project reviews, he’s one of those guys who just defines the word impressive. But they’re all impressive, and very very good…both in what they do and in who they are.

    You won’t see this on cnn or the other yellow journalism sewers, as it doesn’t paint our troops as murderers and rapists and baby killers…..nope, not worthy of a headline.

    Thanks Brendan, this letter should be nail gunned to the forehead of every democrat who has ever said that the war is lost.

    No, it isn’t. The letter was written in February 2006. The surge commenced in February 2007. This letter may prove many things, but the efficacy of the surge isn’t one of them.

    After reading the link, the letter dates from 2006 - it’s pre-”surge”, which makes it even more impressive. It also makes me wonder how many similar thank-yous have been written, but simply ignored by the press. It’s also possible that these thank-you letters aren’t publicized by U.S. military commanders, who either are (G-d bless ‘em) a little too modest for their own good, or who have just given up on the idea of ever getting a fair shake from the media.

    Americans need to see this letter and others like it. In our culture, a little gratitude generates a lot of good will - yet another reason why the MSM would bury these kinds of stories. The Narrative(tm) is dependent on maintaining a “f%ck Iraq” attitude in the USA.

    I also read the predictable ‘criticisms’ in the link (”It’s fake!” “The mayor was forced to write it!” “The author is a Bushy McBlackwater stooge!” :em95: ). I’ll give the left this much: they are consistent. But, when people know what they’re going to say before they say it, it’s a good clue that they’re stuck in a rut. :em41:

    Would you be so kind as to explain why you feel the need to lie so fucking much before sucking my cock? Because I never said what you think I said. I never dismissed anything. I simply corrected Nobraner on his theory that this letter proved the efficacy of the surge, and provided jaybear with an explanation for why this letter’s not making headlines. And that’s all I did. Now, I normally like my letters of apology written in blood, but since I don’t recognise you I’ll assume you’re not always this stupid and dishonest and will settle for radioactive gold dust instead. You can thank me in the letter.

    MSM..mainstream media, used all over the net to describe the pathetic, half assed, traitorous and seditious “media” that have lied, cajoled,manufactured, distorted, omitted, twisted, censored, convoluted, folded , spindled and mutilated the truth from dayh one.

    Liars like Dan Rather, Mary Mapes, distortions like Moore’s bloviations…Pallywood, Green Helmet guy, the Reuters photoshop gallery, the fake “massacres”…want me to go on?

    We’ll call ‘em that, and anything else we like. “Legacy” media. Traitors. Shitbags.

    Rope.Tree.Journalist. Some assembly required.

    You don’t like it, door’s over there.

    Or maybe you won’t see it on the news because it’s nearly two years old?

    The MSM didn’t print it then, either. Didn’t suit their agenda.At the tgime they were too busy trying to crucify Lt Pantano, or printing lies about use of WP and napalm and poison gas in Fallujah, or having orgasms over Abu Ghraib whilst busy printing troofer garbage on how the evil “Boooosh” caused 9/11…the MSM can be counted on one thing and one thing alone.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story,

    I post it on my message board, from time to time, for two reasons.

    1. I swell with pride, every time I read it.

    2. It drives my Liberal Anti-”war” friends nuts.

    Muzzy, while you may have insulted the lady, and you may have propositioned the lady, you have not answered the lady’s question.

    Answer the question, please.

    I’ll thank you in advance to keep a civil tongue in your head.

    That would be his birthmark, Hardclimber.

    I am always fascinated when the ersatz Rhodes scholar shows up to leave a steaming nugget on the carpet. If he/she/it were a tad less agressive, it might be more amusing.

    Thanks for finding this for us. I needed a pick me up today and you just gave me one for the whole week.

    Not only God Bless the 3rd ACR and all of our troops doing this work, but God Bless all of the Iraqi people who are in this fight also.

    May the achieve and maintain the freedom so many have suffered and sacrificed for. For in the final sense, are we not all fighting for freedom itself; ours, theirs, and all who yearn for it.

    What mental defect would cause anyone to want a loss in Iraq?

    The defect of socialism, Ten-ten….by definiton these people are losers, relying on the state and others for their well-being. The selfhatred I see, manifested in attacks on others. I’ve known many lefties that were educated and smart…I have yet to meet I that was wise. I somehow think there is a reason for that.

    Sad and deliberate news, indeed. The media, in it’s haste for failure on the part of the present administration, distorts, omits or slants opinions and events not to it’s liking. God help our government, at least this one, does anything right. The old lefty game, agreeing is bipartisanship, disagreeing is divisiveness. Not news in this country, as much as the left tries to play the equvalency card, citing one conservative source for every ten liberal ones. That dog don’t hunt. Fortunately, the vets know better, all thirty million of us, as well as the free thinkers out there, knowing most of the truth generally lies outside the realm of the MSM. The percentage of Americans trusting the media now has been dropping for some time. Gone are the days of reporting facts, now they become opinion pieces. Persoanlly….I take great pride in they calling me intolerant, or racist, or anything goddammed label the left wishes to place on me. I view them as spiritual, souless losers. I simply consider the sources as I shoot my guns…..and why.

    you know, I had a chance to run that sorry cocksucker ( phelps ) over with my car back in 93.

    But it was a mint condition 1969 VW microbus, -and- I had a baby onboard.

    Shoulda bought the ‘58 buick roadmaster next to it.

    and as far as Muzzy goes, well that’s what we in maine call ‘chum’. As in fish bait.

    That or cat food.

    You see, when a load of fish goes slightly spoiled before it can be shipped or sold, it gets ground up to make cat food. a cat food grinder will digest -anything- that isnt metal and has a feeding apeture about 3 feet across.

    And most of them have piss all in the way of safety features…..

    Hail to the brave warriors who have won this battle and thanks to the kind mayor for expressing his gratitude.

    And to the ever-shining glory of the cavalry:

    Bavarian Cuirassier
    Cuirassier from 1682, predecessor of modern Panzer companies.
    Link: http://dare.paradise.net.nz/bav2.jpg

    Dragoner
    Dragoner, predecessor of modern Panzer Grenadiers or mechnized infantry.
    Link: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bild:Louis_Braun_Württembergische_Dragoner.jpg

    Hussar
    Hussar, predecessor of modern armored reconnaissance
    Link: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cf/Husarz.jpg

    Ulan
    Uhlan, modern Polish parade company, this cavalry type can be seen as the predecessor of the modern tank hunters.

    May the glory and the honor of the cavalry be ever-shining. 3rd ACR takes good care of this tradition. The gallantry they have displayed is outstanding.

    Muzzy,
    You, sir, are a nutless wonder child. You are an unredeeming asshole. It takes some real sack to talk that way to a lady. And you still haven’t answered her question either.

    I can’t pronounce judgment on you. It’s already been done. Nothing I can do to you is worse than the fact that you, Muzzy, are you, and will always be you.

    LC Hardclimber54

    The Dragoners are from Wurtemberg, south-western Germany. Definitely pre-WW1, I would think around the Franco-German War 1870/1871.

    The cuirassier is from Bavaria and the picture is dated 1682.

    I have no clue of any date for that Hussar and the Polish Uhlans are a modern unit just for show.

    Great that you like them.

    Yup, they did. It was a German Imperial Province until 1918 when it again became a part of France after WW1.

    Hope you’ll show us more of same, very interesting!

    My pleasure. I’m an old cavalry man myself, a cuirassier to be exact, so keeping the glory of the cav shining is a real pleasuer to me.

    Panzerman, loved the photo of the Polish Uhlans. The same men who charged German MkI’s and II’s in 1939 with lances. The bravery of Poland’s military has long been underrated.

    Damned cool pictures Panzerman, you’re a Cuirassier eh? it makes sense that a Leo II MBT could be worn as an effective cuirass :em93:

    One of the finest units in Napoleon’s Grand Armee was the Polish Lancers, made up of landowners and noblemen. They were folded into the Imperial Guard and were one of the units that counter charged the British mass cavalry charge at Waterloo.

    I was 6th cav in Germany for a short while, then was transferred to the Flying Tigers (they got permission to use the designation and heraldry of the AVG). Apache units, based out of southern Germany, 4-229th was my unit in GW1. I still remember the cav fondly, crazy bunch that they were, and gallant courageous warriors, too. Like the 3rd ACR. This letter should be printed on the front page of every paper in the country, to demonstrate what is REALLY going on in Iraq. Fat chance. G-d Bless the CAV!
