IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO START BEING THANKFUL...


AP PHOTOGRAPH BY DAVID GUTTENFELDER

ABOVE: It's November and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. No, these American Marines are not dead, thank God for that. They're simply bedded down for the night in the comfort of a hole in Afghanistan. We have a lot to be thankful for as Americans. Personally, I'll be even more thankful when these brave guys can get back home to their families! Special thanks to AP photographer David Guttenfelder for his amazing combat photography.

BELOW: Trying to console each other, these griefstricken soldiers mourn the loss of a fallen comrade. What price freedom for Americans? Unfortunately, it's always been the blood, sweat and tears of American soldiers. Just because these brave men are battle-hardened doesn't mean that they can't cry for a lost friend. We should all be thankful for men like this.
