The cause of freedom is being well-served in Iraq

Like most Fredericksburgers, I read the Letters to the Editor section as a matter of habit. Today, Lt. Colonel Bruce Gubser became my new hero:

I am an American soldier. I swore to defend my country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Roberts has the right to disagree with the things that I am ordered to do, but remember that he has that right because of people like me.

Let me remind him that terrorism is a threat not only to us, but also to many other innocent people in the world. What type of country would we be if we didn’t defend the human rights and freedoms of others?

EXACTLY. Thank you Lt. Col. Gubser, it’s about time someone with rank said something like this.
