    I'm hoping that my kid is not going to be called back to active duty again. But then he's got 22 years until he is legally beyond a recall.

    This just keeps going and the same people carry the burden. Most people don't even pay attention even though they can no longer afford to go to the Mall.

      I hope your service member does not have to deploy.  Thanks for your support, amigo.

        some of us really, really care.

        Hugs to you and yours for dealing with another deployment.

          My soldier came home early from Afghan, after the MRAP rolled over three times, causing compression fractures x2, but without more serious complications.  Must take it easy from here out, in some ways....no hard running or lifting, but can do everything else, and completed a 100 mile bike race last weekend!  ; -  )  Biking is a good form of exercise for folks who have 50 year old knees and backs at the age of 24.
