Heard from the Marines this a.m. ...

Listening to the Laura Ingraham show and she had on the phone a Marine sergeant from the 2nd Marine Logistics Group in Western Iraq. A couple of great quotes from the jarhead:

On whether we're winning: "If Marines are on the ground, we're winning."

On missing Christmas with his wife and 5-year-old daughter: "Tell every one that Santa is wearing desert cammies and delivering freedom to Iraq this Christmas."

Oohrah. Chin up, naysayers and doubters. The whiners and the evildoers are sometimes louder, but freedom, and those who defend it, are stronger.

See you next week.
