From Lt Nixon (fresh back from Iraq): CHUD busters!
I think he's found the perfect name for the group. I've had a few recent run ins with persistent, low-level CHUD myself - more on that to follow. In the meantime, meet the CHUD.
It doesn't rise (or is fall the better term?) to the CHUD level, but I noted a quick (as in within minutes of posting) response to my renlistment video at YouTube below: "Suckers one and all." What's more notable then the sentiment expressed is the speed at which it was posted. As it turns out, the individual who posted it is a subscriber to the MilBlogs YouTube channel, and as such is alerted to any new video posted.
But I also received this response from a mom of one of the guys participating in the ceremony.
Thank you for posting those re-enlisting video's of our servicemen. I am one of those Mom' s that their son was re-enlisting at that location. You gave me a priceless gift, one that I will cherish always. I didn't see him, but you enabled me to attend his second enlistment.Which immediately launched me on a campaign to get the videos posted everywhere I could, in hopes that more relatives might stumble upon them, and get to participate long distance in the event. (And many thanks to PowerLine*, Hot Air, and BlackFive for doing so.)
However, (no surprise, really) my efforts would also really bring the CHUD out of the woodwork. More to follow...
Footnote - Scott at PowerLine: "By my count via a Google News search, there is a grand total of three or four newspaper stories covering the largest reenlistment ceremony in the history of the American military."
Sheesh. But failure to make goals gets headlines worldwide...
