The USS Maine Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery
Here are the names and faces of all the dead from the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Note the very large number of immigrants and immigrant children in this list.
This war is being fought for us by a lot of people who are not yet citizens of the USA. Some of them are the children of illegals. They are doing a job we just don't want to do ourselves, like working in a poultry processing plant for $5 an hour.
So far as I know, this is the biggest immigrant fighting force since the Spanish American War.
I've known such people myself. One of my former students was from Gambia, and a veteran of the Marines. I've known lots of ex-Marines, and a few of them were White Protestants. Some of them were Filipinos. Another was from The Dominican Republic. One was from Pakistan. Another was from Thailand.
