1 November 2006, it's good to be
forgotten. [Soap Box] Senator John
Kerry was giving one of his great speeches the other night and decided to make a FUBAR out of it. (Because this is a family oriented blog, I will not give you the definition to that acronym.) Sen. Kerry was addressing a group of college students and made the following statement, " You know education, if you make the most of it, and you study hard, and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." (USA Today). First, it's good to be in Afghanistan, the forgotten war, as it is referred to. Second, every single military officer has to have a minimum of a bachelor's degree to become an officer. I understand and have told you that I have been working on my bachelor's for 22 years now. It's not because I'm the dullest bulb in the socket, but because of financial considerations, family obligations, the occasional deployment. For Sen. Kerry to announce that it was intended to be an attack on President Bush and not the military soldiers is actually an attack on everyone. To be honest with you, I have not read Sen. Kerry's full remarks that night, but in the quote above, he does not mention President Bush, he only mentions the target audience which also comprises the make up of the military forces. So with that, let me help Sen. Kerry out, his remarks as edited by me. "You know education, if you make the most of it, and you study hard, and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. You can even serve your country." Thank you.
Now, for my day, it's been another wonderful day. The office is keeping me busy and I'm waiting for things to return to the point where I can just do two peoples job. I got my other box from Mrs. Dub and it's a 50/50 box. The first 50% is good for me snacks like Triscuit crackers in the cool flavors like Rosemary & Olive Oil, and it says it helps reduce the risk of heart disease. The other 50% is Betty Crocker Warm Delights microwavable mixes like Hot Fudge Brownie. These are just yummie for my tummie. So with an equal balance of nutrition, I should be fine....right?
(and so you know, I'm actually snacking on the Triscuits right now)
We are half way through this week and that's always good news. Be safe and have a good day.

I do believe you've slimmed down since I saw you last! "Weigh" to Go Dub!! Whatever happened to the "Alaska Cousin" that was challenging you to the weight loss? Did you scare her off? I'm glad that your box arrived - at least I know someone at the USPS is working. Now sit back, enjoy the Triscuits and Brownies and then take your Tylenol PM and wake up and do it all AGAIN tomorrow! We all love you and no one is forgetting about You or any of our fine Soldiers!! GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!!

Hi Sarge, I will apologize for what the stupid people in Massachusetts did. They chose to make John Kerry their senator. I am insulted by the jerk, you are insulted by the jerk, the entire military is insulted by the jerk. So please accept what the jerk will not give you, an apology.

Jeez, what an idiot. I'm sure Miss Bee could correct and grade that rambling diatribe and prove him to be borderline illiterate. Point is, Thanks Dub for being there for us! Don't think fo a minute that our men are forgotten over there, not by the thinking population, anyway. The malcontents are on their own, and will ALWAYS find something to complain about. I guess they mostly live in Mass.

I think everyone should have an "EASY" button - I've got one, but it's currently working in Afghanistan. I'll be glad when it's back home and can remodel our home! Don't let them get under your skin - just remember you're an "Army of One" - just kidding, we need everyone we can get. I hope everyone remembers that VETERAN'S DAY is November 11th - be sure to thank those who are serving, have served, and the families of those that are not here to be thanked in person. It's because of them that we have the freedom to share our views and opinions openly. God Bless Our Servicemen and Women!

Sarge Charlie said...

Me again Sarge, as you may know Miss Bee and I send any packages to AnySoldier.com. If you have someone in your unit that you think would like a package please get me the info. I will send you a sperate note with my email later.

Sarge Charlie said...

Heres the deal sarge, you email me the name and address of some soldier that is not getting a lot of stuff from home, I will mail an anysoldier.com package directly to him. My little way of saying thank you to the guys in the field doing what I can no longer do.

Thank you, stay safe my friend.
