Happy Valentines Day 2010

Battle of Marjah started officially Feb13th in the early hours of the morning.

Mission is to clear the Taliban out of the province that has the highest number of poppy growers and replace with good Afghan trained army.

Even though sometimes I don't agree with the endless circle we are in, I'm still proud of the USA.

These are a few of the pics I found online as I follow this war. It's a daily read for me.

NATO involves many countries but the main ones in the Helmond Province is
Great Britain and USA. I'm sure there are others participating in this offensive and I pray for them as well.

From what I read, this battle was told ahead of time for warning so that there would be less civilian casualities and to give the Taliban time to flee, which really doesn't make sense to me. So, now they are in other places? Alrighty then.....

But it looks like the USA, Canada, and Britain kicked some a--- and they are today fighting fiercely in ground and air assaults. Please pray for our marines as they are the lead in this and are catching the brunt of it.

We should all be proud of the USA even if we don't agree with this war, if they are in it, you have to be proud of the fight they put up because we have some strong men out there.

I didn't put captions on these pictures as the faces tell the whole story themselves.

To all countries involved in this mission and especially USA (I'm a bit biased living in USA)--KICK SOME A----.

We love you and especially on this day, Happy Valentines, USA! My prayers are with you hourly.


  1. Jen,
    I always enjoying your blog, whether it is stitchy news, doggie news, or news about our situation in this war. We tend to get too comfortable in our warm homes and quickly dismiss the rest of the world...thanks for making it real.

    evelyn in newport news...

  2. Thoughts and prayers going out to you and especially to all the soldiers that are serving.

    Thanks for the reminders Jennifer, sometimes we tend to get caught up in the routines of our daily lives, that we forget what so many soldiers and their families are going through on a daily basis.

  3. Those are some great pics. Amazing what the news does not show you. I can imagine all the parents looking for pictures in hopes of seeing just one sight of their love ones. My prayers are with the soldiers and their families.
