Independence Day - Remembering U.S. Troops still fighting

As we celebrate the 4th of July holiday, many U.S. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines overseas are living in dangerous and austere conditions.  The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas are proud to support these troops with care packages, and are thankful for all the American men and women, past and present, who have served our great country!

Excerpts from the Marine Corps Times, June 30, 2016:
"Marines came under rocket attack several times while manning a firebase in northern Iraq"

“The firebase did receive indirect fire rocket attacks on numerous occasions over the course of their 60-plus days in the firebase”.

"The closest attacks to the base happened March 19, when a rocket attack killed Staff Sgt. Louis Cardin and wounded eight other Marines; and March 21, when Marines repelled attacks from a squad of Islamic State fighters, killing two enemy."

"In the roughly 60 days they were at the Kara Soar Counter Fire Complex, about 15 miles from Islamic State forces, the Marines fired more than 2,000 rounds in 486 fire missions".

Below is a heartfelt song written and performed by Josh Groban on the troops still fighting the 'War at Home'.

War at Home lyrics:


Fallen brother
He's a fallen husband
He's about to be woken in his hospital bed
He doesn't want to rest
He just wants to run
And he's tired of being told that he's the lucky one

Caped crusader, she's a new born leader
But you should see her when her daughter's on the phone
And she wipes the tears away and she laces up because
there's still Hell to pay
And it sure feels feels like Hell today
Today

And she says ...
You see these hands?
They're bruised and brown
They're yours alone
Hold on love
We're still going down
Hold on love
We're still fighting
At home
The war at home

Innocence behind his broken expression
He's a child of mercy
He's our unlearned lesson
And he's trying to wake up from this wilderness his world has
now become
He's reaching out to those he's running from

And he says...
You see these hands?
They're bruised and brown
They're yours alone
Hold on now
We're still going down
Hold on now
We're still fighting

And it's
One step forward, two steps back
This is all who are marching
One step forward, two steps back
This is young and old
One step forward, two steps back
Through the void of the silence
You are not alone

You see these hands?
They're a million strong
They are yours now
Hold on now
We're all going down
Hold on now
We're all fighting at home
The war at home
