..."Quiet, damnit, I'm busy. And besides, I'm sleep deprived and jet lagged."
"Come on, just something..."
Okay, how about this great quote from a story about the guy who dishes out ice cream at a local base:
"So great was the mortar threat that soldiers -- until last month -- wore armored jackets and helmets around the base."
"What part of sleep deprived and jet lagged do you not understand?"
"Oh please, who among us hasn't stayed up way too late with a bunch of milbloggers on the day prior to travelling to a war zone half way around the world via a three-hop flight with six hours of layovers, during one of which you couldn't even leave the plane and then immediately wrote something that will inspire us all on the homefront."
"Maybe tomorrow... for now, read this story and ponder what might happen to these kids if I and 150-odd thousand people dressed like me weren't here tomorrow."
"They'd be slaughtered, that's obvious. But come on, give us a good reason to stay."
"You don't need to stay. I need to stay.
We're a demanding lot, huh? Glad you arrived safe and sound. Thanks for your continued service, both on-line and in the sandbox.Posted by Lisa-in-DC at May 9, 2007 01:51 AM
""You don't need to stay. I need to stay."
I will never cease to marvel at the bravery, committment and selflessness of an American soldier.
You sir, are a better man than I could ever dream of being. We pray for your continued safety and also for your success. I hope the glimmers of hope we're reading recently turn out to be true and progress accelerates.Posted by BB at May 9, 2007 04:22 AM
