It starts to look more like Vietnam every day, imo.

I read this yesterday - think this may be a good thread put it in.

To Whom it May Concern

Ryan was scheduled to complete his one-year assignment to Iraq on April 25. But on April 11, he emailed me to let me know not to expect him in Atlanta for a May visit, because his tour of duty had been involuntarily extended. "Just do me one big favor, ok?" he wrote. "Don't vote for Bush. No. Just don't do it. I would not be happy with you."

Car Bomb Near Fallujah Kills 7 Marines

1 hour, 5 minutes ago

By JIM KRANE, Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD, Iraq - An apparent suicide bomber detonated an explosives-packed vehicle on the outskirts of Fallujah on Monday, killing seven U.S. Marines and three Iraqi national guardsmen, the U.S. military said. It was the deadliest day for U.S. forces in four months of fighting

I'm crying my eyes out and this is so small that I am hesitant to point it out...I changed my signature to honor Sergeant Ryan M. Campbell. I sent his story out to 10 people in my email list. Let's make it a mission to spread his story.

I will pass it on.

I can't imagine what it must feel like for you to read something like this, Pug. You, your husband and child are in my thoughts.
