Quote of the Weekend

“Only here, before his eyes, were there no distinctions of race or breeding. Here they slept together, not berthed separately under the neat aeration of the crosses but rolled together in one long trench–Christian and Negro and Jew, patrician and laborer: all of them were good enough to die, to sink to mortality and lie together.

Only in time of peace were they unworthy.”

– Once an Eagle by Anton Myrer

  1. This is so true. One of the crews I had the pleasure of leading in Iraq was a mixture of a Southern Red Neck, an African American Homosexual, a near genius level atheist, a hard core Southern Baptist and a man who only loved stealing things more than a bar fight.

    We lived together in a small tent with 18 inches of space between you and the next bunk for six months. We were literally together 24/7 for the entire time. And we never had one issue, it was the most beautiful thing I have ever been a part of.

    Hope all is well with you. Life is great on this side of the internet.

    • Hey Rob! That’s amazing. Made me smile. 🙂 I’m still having health issues but we think we’ve finally cut through all the symptoms to reveal a severe case of anemia. So, the hope is that once I get my iron counts back up I’ll be good to go. Glad your end of the internet is good!!!
