Oy... this is getting difficult
I am up there three days a week... every day new 2nd Lt's come through... Iraq/Afghanistan war veterans walk through... some say "I need boots now because I'm shipping out Saturday". I think the highest rank I've seen walk in is a Colonel from the Pentagon... so yeah, tons of Marines come through that door.
So I cringe when I read that seven Marines die in one day in Iraq, supposedly after the "war" is over. I wonder if I've briefly met them... these guys are my age... oy.
Yes I can't deny war is good for business... but I'm tired of war. I pray when the history books are written, their sacrifice won't be in vain.
