Halp Us Jon Carry: From Minnesota!
A group of soldiers in the Minnesota National Guard are pictured in a widely-circulated photo showing U.S. soldiers in Iraq mocking U.S. Sen. John Kerry.
The photo shows a line of eight soldiers holding a banner which uses incorrect grammar and lots of misspellings, reading: "Halp us Jon Carry - we R stuck hear N Irak".
A close examination of the photo shows the soldiers are members of the Minnesota Army National Guard. The patches on their arms are that of the 1st Battalion, 34th Infantry division, based in Bloomington, Minn.
Lt. Col. Kevin Olson confirms to WCCO-TV, that the patches are those of the 1/34th, the flag flying in the background shows the insignia of the "Red Bulls," and the marking "1-34" on the tank pictured all belong to the 1/34th division.
Congratilashuns, Guyz. You Are Nefer Out Of Our Thoughtz And Prayerz! God Bless All of You!
The people in this photo have it right... sabe us mr carry, we dont no nothin.
