One year ago today, I boarded a C-17 to start the long trip home. A year ago. Some days if seems like yesterday.

Mandatory 9/11 Post: I’d Rather Forget

leave a comment »

I might have written something about today, but this is better. Remember not only those lost on that horrible day, but the valour of those who raced toward the danger without any regard for their only safety that others may live. And remember that that was one atrocity that touched off many more that have killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians. Lest we forget… And may we all work hard to make a better world… One worthy of the sacrifices and the misery.

An interesting piece. My experience with employers as a reservist varies wildly, even within organizations. Seems to be driven by a lot of management attitudes among other variables. Seeing more encouragement for employers to see the value of reservists is great.

A good gritty account of what fighting down south is like. This matches the stories of my friends who spent time in Kandahar Province.
