Who would be willing and brave enough to volunteer for the dangerous work necessary to protect you, me and the rest of the world, as we sleep snuggly and peacefully in our beds at night?
These are our own U.S. Army soldiers from the 1st Scout Platoon, Delta Company, 155th Brigade Combat Team. They are forming up along a wall as they prepare to clear a building known to house terrorists in Iraq, on March 5, 2005.
In addition, there are soldiers from 26 other lands currently on the ground in Iraq. They are known as the "Coalition of the Willing" and Arthur Chrenkoff, yesterday made an outstanding tribute to them. Do not miss images of the soldiers as they are -
"helping to bring peace and security, working on reconstruction projects, and engaging in humanitarian missions throughout the country. This is a tribute to those thousands of military men and women from around the world, some of them well-known, others less so, but all doing good work for the future of Iraq."One of the most amazing images is that of Mongolian soldiers, about whom, Chrenkoff writes:
"Command hand-over in Mongolian Contingent, 25 February 2005 in Al Hilla. MORE"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." --John 15:13
The last time Mongolian soldiers were in Iraq was in 1258. They destroyed Baghdad then. Now, the Mongolian military has 173 soldiers of the 150th Elite Peacekeeping Battalion in Hillah, Iraq."
