The Afghanistan War aka Operation Enduring Freedom began in October 2001 and continues to this day while the Iraqi War often referred to as the the War in Iraq aka Second Gulf War aka Operation Iraqi Freedom began in March 2003 and ended December 2011 (officially).

During previous wars, our troops listened to music broadcasted to them on the battlefield.  However, due to changing time and the courtesy of modern technology, our troops are able to bring their music along allowing our military to produce, listen and share music from all venues of the American music industry not just with their fellow troops but the world.

As indicated in part one of this post, I made the personal choice to accentuate on the positive of today’s music genre.  Thus, I made the personal choice to omit such videos and songs that I find offensive and negative.  In so doing, I direct you to an article that I found of interest entitled Iraq and Afghanistan:  The IPOD Wars.

As with all wars, our troops have served and continue to serve our country most valiantly sacrificing time away from their families, friends and loved ones.  Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, i.e., life and limb(s).

Thus in remembrance, we reflect and honor our valiant this Memorial Day.

We pray and ask our Lord to return all in service this Memorial Day away from our shores home to us safe and well.

God bless them all not just this Memorial Day but everyday of the year.
