    Several of you know that in addition to being an outstanding prosecutor in "Sweet Home Alabama" I am also a dedicated officer in the Army National Guard. Well, I've been here and there a good bit the past year, but never for more than a few days. That all changed Monday. I'll be going on active duty for at least a year, beginning no later than the first week of November. While I'm excited about what I expect to be doing, you can imagine that leaving my wife and two precious daughters is weighing heavily upon me. Hopefully, however, I'll get to come home several times. You only have to watch the news for 5 minutes to be able to tell how things are heating up.

    Please don't feel sorry for me. I serve by choice, I am a well-paid Major, and I train and serve with the best equipped and trained armed forces in the history of mankind. When you think of my service, don't forget all of those whom have come and gone before me and those yet to serve. Remember those soldiers whom come and go daily and not a word is said. Remember those whom don't have the financial and familial advantages that I'll have while I'm on duty.

    I, and others in uniform, serve so you don't have to. We are happy to do so. God Bless the USA!

    P.S. You're more than welcome to say a little prayer for me, though. [img]smile.gif[/img] If it all possible, I'll post from time-to-time and let y'all know what is going on (the unclassified version, of course!). [img]smile.gif[/img]

    First of all, thank you, and all of your fellow service men. I certainly appreciate what you do for our country.

    Second of all - be careful. War was never a non-dangerous situation, but these buggers don't play fair.

    Third - keep in mind all that you have to come home to and do everything possible to come home to it. Rock the desert!

    We'll be thinking about you and praying for you and your family. We all appreciate what it is you'll be out there doing and just knowing a fellow member of the VH on-line community is out there on the front line will make this all the more relevant.

    God be with and protect you and the armed forces of the USA! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I know what it's like to have to suddenly deploy.

    Take care out there, and keep low.

    Man...3 1/2 more years, and I get to hear "Operations Specialist, United States Navy, Retired, Departing!" [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    It all flew by so damn fast.

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."
