I just learned that Ed “Babe” Heffron of the 506th (Easy Company) has passed this day. I also learned that Earl McClung passed this last Wednesday. They leave us faster and faster, which makes getting their stories all the more important.
Thank you gentlemen, and Godspeed.
Over at Breach Bang Clear the Swingin’ Dick as a very good solution for Good Idea Fairy infestation. The E-4 option won’t solve all outbreaks, but it would cut them down, help improve the quality and thought process of 0-6 and above, and help ensure an effective fighting force. My only quibble is that the E-4 should be armed, and also armed with a pardon in advance. You really do need to go check this out.
Remember, if you do your Amazon shopping here, it costs you nothing (and you get the bargains listed) and it puts a little bit into my pocket. So, shop away.
Also, see my version of “Shop Local” for some neat stuff from neat people.
For all that this has been perhaps the roughest year of my life in many respects, there is much for which to give thanks.
Today, I remember and give thanks for those who have volunteered to give up hearth and home, to man the walls between darkness and light. To all who serve, my thanks and I remember and give thanks for you.
My health is the best it has been in a LONG time, thanks to a change in lifestyle and diet. Without the challenges and hardships of this year, this might never have come into my life.
I have discovered friends I didn’t know I had, have made new ones, and discovered some who say but were not. All is good to know, and I am much the richer for it.
I was challenged to relearn photography and in the process got my creative side re-awakened and moving. That has led to changes on many fronts, and to pushes on many fronts to get things moving. Now, to not just keep that going, but to build it.
Today, there is food for me, a roof over my head, and coffee in the pot. I’ve got quite a lot for which to give thanks. What about you?
If you buy a print copy of one of my books to give as a Christmas gift, drop me a line via the contact widget and I will send you a signed plate to go into that book.

Karzai is now not going to sign the very generous treaty, and is making new demands. My take is very simple: Neither he nor anything there is worth one more Coalition life. Pull out now, pull our stuff out too, and as for the extortion the Karzai government is demanding for it leaving, fuck them. Blow anything we are not taking to pieces, hell, park it all in one spot and nuke it from orbit on the way out.
