The Future of Democracy - Stangers In A Strange Land Part 2
"This Is The Real America..."

Warrior's Last Request - Update

Thanks to many of you, but especially those amazing people at Soldiers' Angels, things are rolling in order to fulfill Specialist Mahlenbrock's last request.

Apparently, there are two months per year when Toby Keith spends all of his time with his family.  He never violates this rule.  So, he won't appear at the funeral to play "American Soldier".

However, he is going to cut a special CD from his home today dedicating the song to Mahlenbrock!  He said that he was touched by the Soldier's request.

He's going to get the CD with the dedication cut in time to send to the funeral.

    I'm just trying to be a father
    Raise a daughter and a son
    Be a lover to their mother
    Everything to everyone
    Up and at 'em, bright and early
    I'm all business in my suit
    Yeah, I'm dressed up for success
    From my head down to my boots

    I don't do it for the money
    There's bills that I can't pay
    I don't do it for the glory
    I just do it anyway
    Providing for our future's my responsibility
    Yeah I'm real good under pressure
    Being all that I can be

    And I can't call in sick on Mondays
    when the weekends been too strong
    I just work straight through the holidays
    And sometimes all night long
    You can bet that I stand ready when the wolf growls at the door
    Hey, I'm solid, hey I'm steady, hey, I'm true down to the core

    And I will always do my duty no matter what the price
    I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice
    Oh, and I don't want to die for you
    but if dyin's asked of me
    I'll bear that cross with honor
    'cause freedom don't come free

    I'm an American soldier, an American
    beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand
    When Liberty's in jeopardy, I will always do what's right
    I'm out here on the front line
    Sleep in peace tonight
    American soldier, I'm an American soldier

    Yeah, an American soldier, an American
    Beside my brothers and my sisters I will proudly take a stand
    When Liberty's in jeopardy I will always do what's right
    I'm out here on the front line
    So Sleep in peace tonight
    American soldier, I'm an American
    An American, an American soldier

And a hearty thank you to G. Gordon Liddy for helping us fulfill the last request of this American Soldier.

And to Diane K., THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Keep calling and emailing radio stations - David's family and friends are asking radio stations to play Toby Keith's "American Soldier" on the 15th at 1pm EST with a dedication to Specialist David Mahlenbrock.

Your attention to this request is acheiving amazing results.  YOU PEOPLE ROCK!!!

Thank you.
