We at Addo Solutions would like to thank our brave men and women on the battlefield this Christmas season, they are the reason we live in a country that allow us to freely celebrate our religious holidays and traditions without government persecution.

Recently there was a statue created that currently stands outside the Iraqi palace, now home to the United States 4th Infantry division.  It will eventually be shipped home and put in the memorial museum in Fort  Hood, Texas.

The statue was created by an Iraqi artist named Kalat, who for years was forced by Saddam Hussein to make the many hundreds of bronze busts of Saddam that dotted Baghdad.

Kalat was so grateful for the Americans liberation of his country; he melted 3 of the heads of the  fallen Saddam and made the statue as a memorial to the American soldiers and their fallen warriors.

Kalat worked on this memorial night and day for several months.   

To the left of the kneeling soldier is a small Iraqi girl giving the soldier comfort as he mourns the loss of his comrade in arms. 
    
Although the media tends avoids it because it does not have the shock effect, we can do something about it.  Next time you see a soldier (retired or not) give them a hug or handshake thanking them for their service to this country.
     
We can also pass this along to as many people as we can in honor of all our brave military who are making a difference.

And please pass this on! Feel free to link directly to this page:

Feel free to copy and pase this to an email if you would prefer, and send it to your friends and family to have them do the same.  

Who knows, you can change the lives of those who helped shape yours...
