A Word To Our War Heroes

Model: RaudoTHE U.S. HAS BEEN FIGHTING, the War on Terrorism for over a year now, and although the fight isn’t over yet, it’s important for us to keep our U.S. soldiers in our prayers. After all, they are the brave souls who are fighting to protect us and our country. Also, it is important to realize that among the soldiers, many of them are not just Latino, but Latinos. In a recent QV Magazine poll, we asked you, “If you could say anything to these Latino heroes, who are fighting the War on Terrorism, what would you say to them?” Here’s what you said:

SALUTE TO YOU!
“For one, I salute you for the work well done on taking care of America. Second, thanks for showing America that we Latinos are not lazy, good-for-nothings who don’t do anything for our country. We are considered the minority, but when it comes down to it, we are there for our country.” —34 years old, Hollywood, CA

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
“You are not alone! You have all of your family and loved ones here in the Latino community praying for your safety. Also, thank you for protecting our freedom and country.” —29 years old, Los Angeles, CA

KICK THEIR ASS!
“It is very difficult in this life to be a Latino—then you add being a Latino in the military? To have a Latino male serving our country is something we are all very proud of—and grateful to have. Keep up the great work! Kick their ass!” —22 years old, San Diego, CA

GOD BLESS YOU!
“Thanks for protecting the country, even though it seems like the country does not support and protect the people of color who live here. Stay strong, brave, and God bless you!” —27 years old, East Lansing, MI

KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
“You Latinos are doing a great job—kick some ass. If you weren’t over there doing your best, it would be one less person helping America in this time of need. Keep your heads up...with the red, white, and blue.” —19 years old, Santa Fe, NM

YOU ARE BRAVE!
“I would say you are the bravest group of Latino men! You all set an example of how much we love our country. NO MATTER IF WE ARE QV OR NOT!” —38 years old, Chicago, IL

WELCOMING YOU!
“Thanks for fighting against terrorism. I am here to welcome you when you come back with victory!” —27 years old, Avenel, NJ

MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU!
“My prayers are with all of you every day. I lost friends on 9/11.” —29 years old, New York, NY

ADMIRATION TO YOU!
“I have so much appreciation and admiration for what you guys are doing to protect the people of our country. Also, to be QV and Latino...that takes so much courage and self respect. I truly admire your strength. Take care and peace!” —22 years old, Cypress, CA

REAL MEN!
“Wow, I guess I would start off by saying thank you for all that you’ve done and continue to do! Being QV and in the military, I suppose, is not an easy thing. It takes balls and a real man to stand up and support what he believes in. I never thought of anything to say until I was just asked, so I want you all to know that we are praying for you and hoping for the best. I love you guys, and we will succeed!” —25 years old, Newark, NJ
