Read and heed 

As soon as she turned 18, she joined the Royal Navy to do her bit for the war effort.

Hers was a small part in a huge, history-making enterprise, and her contribution epitomises her generation's sense of service and sacrifice.

Nearly 400,000 Britons died. Millions more were scarred by the experience, physically and mentally.

But was it worth it? Her answer - and the answer of many of her contemporaries, now in their 80s and 90s - is a resounding No.

Sad that it has to be said 

The upsetting part here is that some Army jackoff wearing stars on their shoulders will probably go after THIS Major for stating the facts. And why not? No less than the Army Chief of Staff said that the worst thing about the Fort Hood attack wasn't the death of US soldiers. No, no... it was the threat posed to "diversity." Not to knock the Army (even though under normal circumstances I take every opportunity), but I gotta believe that any Marine that was saying the kinds of things Hasan was saying would have been looking at a discharge or a General Court quick fast and in a hurry. I have said it for years: political correctness will kill us all. Consider Fort Hood only the most recent example.

Been really busy and almost forgot to put up the link this year. I'll go haze myself now...

And I'm back.

Go give and help the Marine Team smoke the competition this year. Sure the money all goes to the same place, but to quote Big Worm, "there's principalities in this".
