I feel compelled to write about the shooting at Ft. Hood . Again the insanity shakes us. My concern is for the moral of the people in service. I recall sitting in Namn and hearing stories of guys being shot by american citizens. Other tails of friendly fire, which wasn't, in country. I recall the feeling of betrayal, anger and the need for oblivion in drink.
In this case it was a Major in my army. A person I would have been obliged to blindly follow. I have had experience with a military superior threatening soldiers ..
I reflect that a majority of the men and women I served with were the finest people that I ever met.
Anyway Remember Vets. Day
