My Rule 5 Sunday picture this week, in honor of Memorial Day, is the team of Operation Redwing. Remember the reason for the day.
"Navy SEALs (Sea, Air, Land) operating in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. From left to right: Sonar Technician -- Surface 2nd Class (SEAL) Matthew G. Axelson, 29, of Cupertino, Calif; Information Systems Technician Senior Chief (SEAL) Daniel R. Healy, 36, of Exeter, N.H.; Quartermaster 2nd Class (SEAL) James Suh, 28, of Deerfield Beach, Fla.; Hospital Corpsman Second Class (SEAL) Marcus Luttrell; Machinist Mate 2nd Class (SEAL) Eric S. Patton, 22, of Boulder City, Nev.; LT (SEAL) Michael P. Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y. With the exception of the lone survivor, Luttrell, all were killed June 28, 2005 by enemy forces while supporting Operation Redwing 050628-N-0000X-001."
On to some fabulous linkage:
On the subject of Memorial Day, please start with Pamela Gellar's post about Obama's upcoming Germany visit. Seriously. Don't miss it.
Stacy McCain put up a wonderful defense of Mark Levin this week. Levin often gets heat for his abrasive style, and he certainly drew some this week with an insult or two that he delivered on his show. Stacy has the other side. Also, be sure to stay tuned into Not One Red Cent, which is picking up steam (and attention) daily!
I'm going to agree with The Other McCain and say that Carol at No Sheeples Here! has such a great blog; her photoshop work is off the charts and I'm shamelessly lifting her Memorial Day art just so maybe you'll go look at the rest of it. And her Full Metal Jacket Reach Around post just Rocks!! It's always a pleasure to look at her site. And for the record, she tells us that that's banana ice cream in the cooler. Yum!
Jimmie at The Sundries Shack has a round-up of the Pelosi-Palooza. William Jacobson also has an excellent post dealing with the RNC video.
Gateway Pundit is keeping us up to date with Susan Boyle!
Troglopundit made my day with these pics! This post is a keeper! Go check it out, even though he called me a "he" on his post about Not One Red Cent, and once tried to change my name to Sue.
If you can stand any more Meghan McCain, Vets on the Watch had a great post. I'm going out on a limb here, but I don't think he's a fan!
If you've been following Darrell's baby raccoon rescue, he has new pictures! The little fellas are growing and getting cuter every day.
Pundette wrote about the Cheney/Obama dueling speeches. Her take is well done!
If you're a fan of Marco Rubio, add this to your blogroll.
Snaggletoothie addresses the health care issue and the Garafalo issue all at the same time. He also helped smack a few trolls on my blog this week so I totally *heart* him!
Generational Patriot had a great post on credit card reform.
Fist Bumps for World Peace? Only by Donald Douglas! With photos!
Erick Erickson goes after Tom Ridge!
Yukio has been quiet this week but that's because he's busy writing. Wish him luck.
Sippican Cottage has a lovely Memorial Day post about Uncle Bobby. I'm tellin' you, if you haven't checked out this blog, you're missing something.
