I almsot joined the Navy. Two buddies joined around the same time and I was very close to following suit. Got involved in theatre and got pulled away. I have the utmost respect for anyone with the strength to serve in the military.I work with a guy who has two sons in the SEALS. I can't imagine the worry he constantly goes thru. I admire a man that produces the elite fighting men of our country.

I can understand that, they might actually capture a terrorist someday and get prosecuted because the terrorist stubbed his toe while being escorted to his cell.

yeah, no kidding.

It's really annying to listen to any president talk over a plan of action for our military as though they came up with the plan or have even a minute understanding of what an operation will entail. It annoyed me when Bush did it, and it annoys me when Obama does it.
