FIRST - My hat is off to you!  I'm retired military.  Since I'm 57, and 
have medical issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure, just to 
take the top two, THEY won't let me GO to the "sandbox"

Then again, YOU and I know that what is over THERE is NOT what Americans 
call "sand".  It more resembles talcum powder.  Once inhaled, the 
"gritties" stay with you until AFTER you leave.

I have a certain degree of Empathy for you and the others that ARE doing 
the fighting.  May this trip be safe for you!!

I stop at sympathy though.  I say this because those that serve, do so 
as PURE volunteers.  There is NO draft.

You may well have gotten more than you bargained for, BUT you DID sign 
on the line.  Once you do that, as you know, you ARE subject to have to 
pay the price for your decision.  At least you can be sure that Pres. 
Bush ISN'T planning the missions AND dictating what the weapons load 
WILL be.

That isn't to say that everyone, including myself, IS thoroughly happy 
with the way it HAS gone.
