i will pray for your nephew's safety, theresa........everyone here knows exactly what i think of this war, so i won't belabor the point here. regardless of what i feel about their commander-in-chief (one of my recent patients called him "ten pounds *edited for language*in a five-pound sack"), i too support our brave military men and women, wherever they may serve.
my 18-year-old leaves for boot camp herself in 2 1/2 months. i've given up hope that this mess will be over by the time she graduates from her advanced training program.......i know that not everyone who joins the army will end up in iraq, but with her going into the medical corps, where else would she be needed as urgently?!
may more reasonable people prevail, and may all our troops be brought home soon. (if not sooner, the morning after inauguration day 2005 sounds good to me.)
