Trust me war is not fun. This urban warfare these men are going thru has to be the worst type. My hat's off to them and my prayers are always with them and they have my total respect. At the local "Pub" I always send them over a drink and have the waitress tell them "Thanks" for me. They don't get the credit they deserve.
Also want to throw in a little thing for ....Toys for Tots
....While home from my first tour in "Nam" I spent Christmas day helping to distribute Toys at an orphanage. Today, It is still the best memory of Christmas I've had.
