Warriors In Their Own Words


We have always had warriors, from as far back in history as one can go — warriors are timeless.

Warriors have a moral code and are not simply trained killers (as they are all too frequently portrayed).

If we did not have warriors, we would undoubtedly be speaking another language, German, Japanese, Chinese, or Russian.

Warriors are born, they are not created. Certainly they are trained, but to be a warrior is a calling.

We should be forever grateful to our warriors and to their families who are all so courageous.

We should honor our warriors. Warriors are NOT, as they are commonly portrayed, victims with no where else to go but the military.

This project will show people what intelligent, honorable, and brave people we have standing in the way of the free world’s demise.

Freedom is not Free website

"Our Mission is to Honor Our Warriors and to raise funding through our documentary, portrait book and exhibit --to aid wounded service members, their families, and the families of the fatally wounded."


Sergeant Michael A Thomas Personal Narrative "3 A.M. IN BANGOR, MAINE"

"As I walked off the plane, I was taken aback; in the small, dimly lit airport, a group of elderly veterans were there waiting for us, lined up one by one to shake our hands. Some were standing, others were confined to wheelchairs, and all of then wore their uniform hats. Their now-feeble right hands stiffened in salutes, their left hands holding coffee, snacks, and cell phones for us.

"As I made my way through the line, each man thanking me for my service, I choked back tears. Here we were, returning from one year in Iraq where we had portable DVD players, three square meals, and phones, being honored by men who had crawled through mud for years while little more than the occasional letter from home. A few of them appeared to be veterans of the war in Vietnam, I couldn’t help but think of how they were treated when they came back to the U.S., and yet here they were to support us."

"These soldiers – many of whom had lost limbs and comrades – shook our hands proudly, as if our service could somehow rival their own."

"We later learned that this VFW group had waited for more than a day in the airport for our arrival."

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

This video is first class and the reason it is so awesome is because of our soldiers. Listen to their words, they speak from their heart and soul how they feel. It has me crying but that is what tears are for too. Grateful and awe inspiring tears of pride in our American's that give so much for us to be free and for others too to learn what freedom is about.

....Thank you John 5 (VN 69/70) for sending this to me.

Warriors are born with the spirit in their DNA.
They know from early on how to be a fighter for what they believe in.
It's just ingrained in our blood.

Whew, that's some heavy stuff, that's what Team Theodore is all about, it's not easy to strip away the veneer, the pretense that good men don't sacrifice everything when they put their lives on the line to save and protect their fellow soldiers. What the cowardly jellyfish amongst us don't get is that it was all for them too. Thanks John and WT.

The tip of the spear is mighty small. So few warriors now defend so many non warriors. I pray for the men and women who defend me now, as I pray for those who have defended the concept that is America for 233 years.

Lynn, I think so too. It might take something that happens for the warrior to realize it even but it is always there, right there a part of their spirit.

Jack, yes it was for them too just like you said. Thanks Jack.

Tom, I like the way you put that about the tip of the spear, it takes a lot. Thank you.

In my newspaper article yesterday 'Battles of Lexington & Concord...' I reminded this secular blue state of socialism that before Captain Parker's 77 Minutemen took on the Red Coat's force of 700, Pastor Jonas Clark read from Proverbs 6:16-19 ... " There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood... and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers." FREEDOM ISN'T FREE and God bless out patriots of yesterday and TODAY!
