Thank you brother. Not a day goes by that I don't pray for that very outcome.

I just signed up for the Army National Guard the other day. I go on Monday the 19th to Indianapolis to take the entry test and my pyshical. I'm still trying to decide between Infantry and Cav. Scout. The recruiter told me straight up that I'll probably go to Iraq within my first year. I'm nervous and excited at the same time.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system and too early to shoot the bastards."

CA357, where'd you get that quote? I love it and would like to use it with a source.

US Navy, Aviation Ordnanceman, 2nd class, 1965-1969. Range master at NAS Miramar, Fightertown USA, member of 11th Naval District Pistol team.

Signed up for service in Nam., spent 3/4th of my service in Sandy Eggo. Go figure.
