• Send a Marine An Email


From Wake Up Americans

From: Colonel Simcock, USMC

“US Marine Colonel Simcock, the commander of USMC Regimental Combat Team 6 in Iraq, is asking for 6,000 positive emails to his Marines.

That’s one email for each Marine in his RCT command. COL Simcock is concerned about the effect of the negative barrage that those Marines are getting through the electronic media.


“If you’re reading this email, then you can probably click on the address, type a few words, and then hit “send” to be all done.

It doesn’t have to be the Gettysburg Address. Something as simple as “Hello, Marine. We thank you for what you’re doing.

You are in a noble task. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Best wishes &get home soon” is more than sufficient.

I find that the part I put in bold is the most offensive. Whether you agree with the war or not, to send a “barrage of negative messages through electronic media” to our troops is utterly outrageous. It is not the war that is demoralizing them, it is the negative barrage of messages through electronic media as per their own commander.

Do people NOT understand that our troops, in this day and age of the internet, are seeing what you are saying…. and so are our enemies?

These morons deliberately ignore that simple basic concept as they are spewing their hatred.

Our troops need to know we appreciate them and all they do for us.

Is it THAT hard to actually give them that support?

For some it seems to be. They should be ashamed of themselves.

EMAIL A MARINE. Tell them how much they mean to us. Take 30 seconds right now and just do it, ok?

Thank you.
