An upcoming memorial day
A good friend of my youngest son came by for a Memorial Day visit.
They graduated together from Celina High School.
He was voted best looking his senior year. If I'd had a vote, he would have had mine too.
In fact, if he would shave his legs, I would ask him out right now.
This young stud is now in the U.S. Army.
He knew Pete. He will be deploying to Afghanistan in a month.
He is responsible for a group of Apache helicopters.
As a memento, he brought me a dummy round from the 30MM cannon on his birds.
The pen might be mightier than the sword, but I don't know if it stacks up against this weaponry.
The Apache can fire these babies off at a rate of 625 rounds per minute.
That sort of thing can ruin Omar's day.
And here's hoping it does. Soon. And often.
Hey you Talibs. Don't know when your next memorial day observance is. But buckle up.
When you aren't too busy raping or selling a 13 year old girl, or burning books, or making drug deals, or destroying centuries old carvings as Allah tells you to do, come on out and greet your American visitors.
Josh and his buds will be looking for your sorry asses.
