Soldiers' Angels Germany posted these pictures (actually the same picture) June 25, 2008 (HT: Michelle Malkin). The caption reads:
U.S. Army Task Force Regulators 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment Staff Sgt. Fred Hampton, of Lexington, Ky., kneels on a knee to talk with a young Iraqi boy at the future site of Regular 6 Park in the Thawra 1 section of the Sadr City District of Baghdad on June 20.

Time after time we see pictures like this, of Iraq's children wanting to be with America's soldiers. They trust our military, as evidenced by the closeup below of the boy's feet.
The NRCC is asking Americans to fill in the blank: "I'm proud of my country because ______." (also HT: Michelle Malkin)
I'm proud of my country because, despite her flaws, America is the greatest force for liberty in the world. May we truly celebrate the great blessings we have living in the United States of America.
Happy Independence Day!
