FROM THE SANDBOX…

February 20th, 2007

CAPT Doug Traversa: Just when I think nothing will surprise me, Afghanistan throws me a curve ball. Let me set the stage. Maj Apple, Wali, Hamid (our interpreters) and I were sitting in our office having a Deep Discussion about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Somehow the topic of gays serving in the […]

FROM MY DAD…

February 20th, 2007

I could never bring myself to forward all the email jokes, cartoons and other Internet comedy that land in my inbox. But then I started posting the ones my dad sends me. Judging from my comments and emails, my dad has become one of my greatest blogging assets. So for your morning blog chuckle I […]

FROM MY CHAPBOOK…

February 20th, 2007

My name is Jeff Hess and I’m a biblioholic. I own hundreds of books. Not valuable books, mostly Science Fiction paperbacks and text books, tomes rescued by the bag from library book sales. A few years ago, in the interest of not burying myself, I began reading more books from the library and taking notes. […]

SOMEONE SHOULD BURN IN HELL…

February 19th, 2007

This must be one of the vilest sins ever committed by anyone in marketing and the person responsible must be found, hanged, drawn, burned and quartered. Very few Americans have ever had the extreme displeasure of tasting the foul, demoniacally contrived substances known as Marmite in England and Vegemite in Australia. I have and more […]

CAPT Matt Smenos: It used to be the remoteness of it all. The lean, Spartan efficiency of a “Forward Operating Base” made us uncomfortable. In July of 2006, when we first arrived in Sharana, my team of Airmen and I couldn’t believe how little there was here. Our huts were simple, four-walled boxes. The occasional […]

MY COMMENTS…

February 19th, 2007

Part of being a good citizen of the blogosphere is visiting, reading and, most importantly, taking the time to leave a comment on other’s blogs. It’s all about the conversation. In the interest of setting an example I’ve decided to link to those blog posts that have compelled me to leave a comment. 0858 Could […]

MONA’S MONDAY…

February 19th, 2007

My dad isn’t the only one who sends me fun stuff via email. A good friend and educational mentor also routinely passes along her share of chuckles — intermixed with not a few requests for veracity on things viral and outragious. Don’t worry, there still plenty of stuff to come From My Dad but occassionally […]

Eric Coulson: Errands to run today. Out the back door (I almost always leave that way) I hop up onto the ledge of the Texas barriers that surround the porta-potties, hop down past the HESCO Barriers and by one generator. Now I am out in the open. I cross a small footbridge and find my […]

SGT Roy Batty: I had been out of bed for less than an hour, and was already fighting tooth and nail not to have a bad day. Do you ever have mornings like that? Daybreaks where everything in the house is doing its dead level best to trip you up? Where it seems that the […]

1SG Troy Steward: Day 6 of Operation Mountain Fury started with a good breakfast shared with my ANA brothers. The half of Recon Company we have here is doing a really good job, and the 10th Mountain boys really like them and say they are the best ANA they have ever worked with. Face and […]

DOES WAL-MART EVER HAVE A PLAN B…?

February 16th, 2007

Normally I wait for Wal-Mart Wednesdays to post the news from Wally World, but this one couldn’t wait. A month ago I posted about Tashina Byrd and the Wal-Mart pharmacist who laughed in her face when she tried to legally purchase Plan B. Things worked out for Byrd, she got what she needed at another […]
