Spitting on Heroes.

Read the account of what happened to PFC Joshua Sparling, I did and I wrote the following letter to Spirit Airlines.

To Whom it May Concern,

I have just read an article about the disgusting manner in which Spirit Airline personnel treated PFC Joshua Sparling, who was seriously wounded in Iraq. This story is documented at the following website:

For my business I travel frequently, and have used Spirit Airlines. I will be directing my administrative staff to book me on airlines other than Spirit. I would encourage your company apologize to PFC Sparling and you post your apology on your website, such an apology would do a great deal to restore my confidence in Spirit Airlines.
Thank You, Lima Company.

If you're looking to escape the stench of lies perpetrated by Mr. Jesse Macbeth (not worth a link), you can learn of the awe-inspiring heroism of Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines. Then get out to your Memorial Day parade to say thank you to soldiers past and present. And then get out your checkbook and give to a military family support organization, or a rehab hospital, or the USO. There isn't any excuse for not helping if you have the means, so do it.

By the way, Lima Company is very proud of their accomplishments in Iraq. Those who would deride those accomplishments - namely, trying to help the Iraqi people build a nation where they can raise their kids in peace and freedom - don't "support the troops". These guys know liars when they see them.
