Fallujah's Roar

9780739323014 Marine Major Douglas A. Zembeic was killed on May 11th, 2007. He's one of the Marines who was prominently featured in "No True Glory", by Bing West.   

Zembeic told Los Angeles Times reporter Tony Perry that battling insurgents was “the greatest day of my life. I never felt so alive, so exhilarated, so purposeful. There is nothing equal to combat, and there is no greater honor than to lead men into combat. Once you’ve dealt with life and death like that, it gives you a whole new perspective.”

What an incredible hero Major Douglas Zembeic was and filled with wisdom:

*“Be a man of principal. Fight for what you believe in. Keep your word. Live with integrity. Be brave. Believe in something bigger than yourself. Serve your country. “Teach. Mentor. Give something back to society,” Zembiec’s message in his journal continued. “Lead from the front. Conquer your fears. Be a good friend. Be humble and self-confident. Appreciate your friends and family. Be a leader and not a follower. Be valorous on the field of battle and take responsibility for your actions.”*

Please let the military that you meet in Iraq know how much real Americans appreciate their sacrifice and service. I was at the NASCAR race in Charlotte yesterday, and the huge crowds there were extremely appreciative of the sacrifices by men like Major Douglas Zembeic, as was in evidence by the patriotism, the reverential silence for taps and "God Bless America," how many would just walk up to the soldiers from Fort Bragg in uniform, shake their hands, and show their appreciation for their service.

how sad that we treat each other with such hostility. Hope all is well.
