Read this.

It's quite long 12 pages - but regardless of if you agree with the war in Iraq or not, you need to read this article from the Rocky Mountain News. It's an account of Maj. Steve Beck, and what he has to go through as a notifying officer for the Marine Corps. Painful appointment, but required nonetheless - I could never imagine having to inform a family that their child or spouse is never coming back. The war has opponents and proponents - but one must respect the job that the soldiers do. They lay their lives on the line for something that they believe in, and that is something few people can lay claim to.

No matter the opinion, the spins, the lack of apparent unison on policy we must always support our troops. They are us, we they. Coming from someone who spent time in the Army it is vitally important. God bless the military.
