I am Lt. Col. in the Marine Corps and have been in Iraq now for over three months (on the way to just over 12). I am married and have three beautiful children. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you wrote in your June 6 article entitled, “The Cost of the War on Terrorism.” We are doing a great deal of good out here and even if the worst happens to me, it will all have been worth it - my wife and kids know that also. You are a great American Ben and knowing that people like you exist and can write so eloquently about this war makes it easier to deal with.p>Take care and thanks again, br> — Lt. Col.

“The best of the human spirit is alive and well inside those red T-shirts.”
Mr. Stein graced us with his presence at the TAPS gathering over Memorial Day weekend. The ending line of his article states so eloquently that there is a heavy price we pay for freedom, however there is still light, there is still hope and there is still promise for the future.
Mr. Stein, thank you for being a part of our weekend. Thank you for your patriotism and for honoring the sacrifice of our men and women in the armed forces and their families.p>God bless you and God Bless America! br> — Ellen Andrews /p>
