A Real Hero

Blackfive has an inspiring story of a true American Hero, Major Tammy Duckworth. We often tend to forget that women are contributing in a larger part than ever before in combat type operations.

The thing that makes Maj. Duckworth a real hero in my eyes is her determination to reassume her duties in the military despite the extent of her injuries. I certainly wish her well in her quest. Maj. Duckworth is the embodiment of the best qualities of Military service, Pride, Honor, and Faithfulness.

Kudos to Blackfive on being named Best Military Blog in the 2004 Blog Awards!
He certainly earned it.

Again, even I wonder why we don't see more of this kind of thing reported in the news. All we ever hear about is how many have died and how much fighting is going on. Well, damn this is a WAR, right. That means fighting and people dying. That's one of the problems with people in this country, we have no perception of the actual 'costs' of war.
By the way, thank you for visiting my blog. Despite what you may think of my post about the Bush girls, I do consider myself to be more independent than left or right. Had you read the post before that one you might have gotten a better sense of who and what I am.
You are however right. It was rather mean spirited of the host of the resturant, and myself for taking our displeasure with their father out on the girls. Alas that is but one of the many downsides of being a Presidents child.
