I haven't been on in a while. I enlisted in the US Army and I have been away training. While I was in training, my unit, the 489th CA BN, deployed to Afghanistan. Since then they have been mortared several times, and so far no one has been hurt. They have been lucky, but they still have a year to go. And I gotta say, it's a terrible feeling knowing that they're over there dealing with it, and your stuck here at home, hoping that they return safely.
All I ask is that you take a second to appreciate what they're doing. I don't care if you disagree with the war, if you hate the reason we're over there, hell, I disagree too at this point. But the point is, those are people, friends, family, and we lose them everyday.
This is a community that, despite the lack of cohesion I see here from time to time, I believe can come together and bear solid fruit. I love psionics, I love the community, and I love my country.
Thank you if you took the time to read this short post.
