Great! Very great job U.S. Air Force! The terrorist al-zarqawi, he has gone "boom!"

Go Air Force!
God bless the Air Force and all of the military forces that took out that evil man. I'm proud of you guys. Keep the hunt going and be safe -- love ya'll.
I just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation to the United States Air Force for all the great things you do, but especially today for taking out Zarqawi. On May 7, 2005, my son Todd Venette was killed by a roadside bomb in Baghdad. This bomb killed another American, Brandon Thomas, and 22 Iraqis including children. A few hours after the attack, Zarqawi issued a press release stating his people were responsible. I never thought I would see this day or that he would see judgement. My younger son is a Naval aviation officer serving in Afghanistan, supporting the Air Force at Bagram Air Base. Our family is very grateful to all the military people serving now and in the past, and I just wanted to say thank you.

Elimination of terrorist murderer Al-Zarqawi
I want to congratulate your fine Airmen and the intelligence community for having achieved such an important goal as the elimination of an evil person like Al-Zarqawi. Working hard and believing in it always yields fruits, and this one is for peace. Thank you.

Congratulations on getting al-Zarqawi
I am the sister of a soldier deployed to Baghdad. I woke up this morning to find out that your fine pilots got al-Zarqawi. I wish to express my congratulations to you and my heartfelt thanks to the Air Force and all branches of military serving in Iraq for the fine job you are doing. Please never think that you are not fully supported by the American people. I fly my flag proudly at my home and on my vehicle -- not stickers, real flags. I am proud to be an American and so should you. I pray for all of you every day and wish all to come home safe to your families and loved ones. For those who give their lives defending the rights of others as well as defending our country, your sacrifice has not been in vain. I would rather have the fight over there than here on our shores. We love all of you and respect you and the job you are doing. Thank you!
