"The Fabirc That Holds The Flag Together"

"Message to the Democratic Party Leadership", from Cpl Mason

"Cpl Chris Mason recorded a video message for the Democratic Party Leadership before he was killed in action in Iraq. Chris was killed by Al Qaeda terrorist. He produced this video on November 12th 2006 at FOB Summerall. This video just recently worked its way to me (his dad) on March 23rd 2007, now I am posting it to the internet for him. It reflects his beliefs about the war in Iraq, the people of Iraq, freedom, why he joined the US military, what he expected after joining the military, and if the warriors lost in the war will be lives wasted."

Cpl Mason was killed on November 28th, 2006 by Al-Qaeda Terrorist forces operating in Iraq.
He was laid to rest December 12th 2006, exactly thirty days after making this video statement to the Democratic Party Leadership.

Wild Thing's comment.........

What an honor it is for this country of ours to learn of men like Cpl Mason and all of our troops that volunteered to serve our country. And as Chris says in the video he made " they are the fabric that holds the Flag together."

I cried watching this video, and wish so much that every person serving now could know with all their heart how much they mean to us, how much we know of their sacrifices they make. Missing their loved ones, their families, being away from home when not feeling great, missing special holidays and the first word their child says. The first step their son or daughter takes and so many things.
Know that always we are supporting you and thank you with all our hearts. And a thank you to your families too that serve in such a special way.

If only the politicians believed in this country like this fine young soldier did. God, they should be so ashamed of themselves!

It's hard to say anything after watching that.

Cpl. Chris Mason's loss is a great loss to America. He was so superior a person compared to the sheep in Congress that are trying to undermine the effort he died for. You don't find a better example of America than in this fine young man.

This shows the character of our young fighting men and women in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. These Soldiers are the heart and soul of what this country, I think, used to be. Thanks to them it still can be, I am still hopeful of that.

The democrats have a different agenda, first, they hate Bush, second they don't care what it takes to get him as long as they get him. The country, in the meantime, is bieng torn apart by this selfish agenda, and they don't care. When their leaders, Schmuckie Schumer, the pathetic Reid are offered as leaders and John Kerry is the best they can do for a Presidential candidate you got to know it is not our country they are rooting for.

Once in awhile they parade some soldier who is a complete malcontent and claim he represents the majaority of our troops in the Middle East. This is a baldface lie. (The lie is of course never challanged) Of all the troops who have volunteered 95% believe in what they are doing and thank God for that.

This Corporal is one of that wonderful 95%.

May Cpl Mason rest in peace. Sadly, the press has taken up where they left off during the Vietnam years. Statements such as Cpl Masons' are seldom if ever heard by Americans. Thank God for the Cpl Masons of the world. If only that kind of patriotism and love of country would work itself into our weak wristed congress, we'd all be better off.

Oh Chrissy, through tears when I read he was killed. They're all like him. "The fabric that holds the flag together." We know only too well the Dem's have no heart or soul and don't give a rats butt for our military. Kerry, the "Chief" of all anti-military corps of the US Senate and House leads his "troops" of Durban, Kennedy, Hagel, and the rest of the pond scum.
I hope to God they are wiped out this coming 2008.
My highest regard, honor and thanks to Cpl Mason for his job well done along with all of his true American patriotic comrades!

That was awesome. Such great perspective from a young man. I hope his folks are proud of the young man he was.

Chrissie, that was incredible.
Thank you and Cpl Mason's family for sharing that.
God Bless his family and assist them in their grief.
Indeed, : The fabric that holds our flag together". What an awesome statement. He gave his life for that fabric.
Hopefully, Pelosi and her ilk will see it.
The Democrat's and Republican naysayers heads should be hung in shame.

Loss of a good man. Knew that the US makes the world a better place. We aren't overlords, but liberators. Understood that it didn't have to be complicated. Real shame to lose those such as him.

What a great epitath, God bless him. Some love our country, the rest are democrats.
