    Re: An open letter to the 2012 Crimson Tide-Written by a Major in Afghanistan

    Great read. Thanks for posting.

    My son and I (he's currently home from contracting in Afghanistan) have had the opportunity to watch the Iron Bowl last week and the SEC-CG last night together. We'll miss the BCS-CG together given he has to leave out on the 10th. He is a veteran who served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan prior to his current civilian service as a contractor so he's no stranger to the conditions and risks these guys face every hour of every day. I can't begin to express the gratitude I have for all these men and women who "CHOOSE" to risk life and limb so that we may enjoy our spoiled and free lifestyle.

    A great big "Thank You" to all who have served, are currently serving and especially to the families of those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

    RTR!!!

    That's good stuff. I, too, was in the Bama NG. And being a war vet myself that's just good stuff!
    ROLL TIDE!

    hey, this is my buddy's unit. Cool "small world" moment

    That was awesome. I hope Coach Saban shares that with the players at tonight's football banquet.

    Very powerful read. That put a smile on my face. I'm sure the team will appreciate the letter.

    I never served and regret it. Thanks to all who do and who have and to your families. God bless you for your unselfish service.

    Roll Tide.
