I know the other Imperial Correspondents will be posting this as well, but today I have been reminded of all the blessings in my life and I want to share them and give public Thanks for all that God has given me, which is surely more than I ever deserved.

I am thankful for my wife, a woman who is so much more than I deserve, a woman who saved me from a life of spiritual emptiness and solitude. With out her, I would be a bitter and miserable creature consigned to a life of hate and fear. Thank you Bangie Thing for saving my life.

I am thankful for my children who have made me whole and have become the sole focus of my life, showing me that I was not put on this earth for myself alone. I have two wonderful little Princesses who make every day a new and exiting adventure, and a son who has filled me with more pride than I thought possible.

I am thankful to have been born an American, to be the recipient of liberty and freedom that the rest of the world envies. And I am thankful for having been able to serve her, in a small way. I am thankful that I was allowed the honor to wear the Eagle Globe and Anchor and to be a part of the brotherhood of Marines.

I am thankful for a job which I enjoy, allows me to pay the bills, and that allows me to continue to serve others.

And I am thankful for the most loyal and generous friends a man could ever wish for, the Loyal Citizens and Denizens of the Rottweiler, my second family. I am thankful for the incredible friendships of Misha, BC, and Jackboot, who have been mentors, guides and true friends. And special thanks for Misha, who helped a decrepit old war horse make it through the passing of the torch to my son, and helped me put my own service into perspective. A truer friend a man could not ask for. And I am thankful for the trust he has placed in me, and the privilege of being a member of Management. Words can not do justice to the true feelings I have about the great people on this site that I am honored to call my friends.

Lastly I am thankful for the service and sacrifice of all those who wear the uniform of the United States of America, and for those on the home front who are also thankful and supportive of them. Organizations and people such as the ones Michelle Malkin talks about here.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, my dear friends and family of the Rottweiler.

    I wasn’t sure about Bangie Thing’s ID till now;I thought maybe this was Crunchie’s favorite gun! Seems an unusual nickname for a wife–but then what do I know?

    I relate to that so much! I refer to my sweetie as The Other Half. for she taught me how to feel, and to know only a strong man is not afraid to show them. Oh, one does what one must, my job is to run point. Comes with the job description. Often lonely, but she watches my six very well. She brought out reservoirs of strength in me I never knew I had, perhaps saving my life and heart. I am so very proud of her, grateful to and for her. I taught her how to shoot, as best I could. For I am fiercely protective of her. Crunchie is so right on this one…….to simply have her say…”My husband’s name is on that memorial….”
    She was proud, and my heart sang.
