Post 9/11, for a couple months, the United States was a country of love, a country of support, and a country of patriotism. Prayer vigils were being held, churches were inundated with new congregants, and our military was held in high-regard. It was not uncommon to see a man or woman in uniform being thanked for their service.
The tides have shifted and it breaks my heart - our military is being portrayed by liberals, actors, and the drive-by media as basically terrorists. Never do we hear the stories of soldiers saving lives. Never do we hear about their humanitarian efforts. Never do we hear how the United States military is making our world a cleaner, healthier, and safer place. Even more so, rarely do we hear the stories of soldiers who have returned home from active duty.
While the loony-toon-left continues to undermine our military, I thought it about time to recognize those who put themselves in harms way.
This week I spoke with a friend of mine, Corporal Sheryl Verhulst, who has since returned home from active duty. Sheryl is not only actively involved in our armed forces, but she is also involved with the College Republicans. She does her best to stay active regarding many conservative causes. Her life story is truly inspirational.
The interview is as follows:
