Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Dear Mr. Obama...

I married my better half not long ago, and four of the five men who stood by my side that day either have served or will shortly serve our country in Iraq. Two leave soon after the new year; two have returned safely. The fifth is also a member of the armed forces, and may deploy at some future date. And each of these five men supports Sen. McCain, despite the promise of Sen. Obama to leave Iraq on a preconceived timetable one could reasonably argue is sooner than what might occur should McCain become president.

The honor that motivates these men, and the thousands of men and women who serve with them, is explained simply and profoundly by one of their fellow servicemen in the following video. I was unprepared for the strength of this video, which was brought to my attention today by the Drudge Report. I hope you will watch it in its entirety, and then share it with those who might need just one more reason to support Sen. McCain on Tuesday.
