Swapping Qs in Twin Hickory

NMS – Fun to be back out at GridIron. On the drive over from Dogpile, YHC realized that there are some other great Qs out there that have not signed up and decided on a hot potato.  Thanks to the fellow Qs for jumping in. White Deer reminds us that while the Q is in charge he is also on a stage with a spotlight.

Coffeeteria makes YHC seem that some might be interested in a military history / movie watch night where we can go in knowing what we are talking about and avoid building up to a downer.  Bottom line: War sucks – the aftermath sucks too. When nations policy goals conflict and diplomacy fails, war is the outcome.  No soldier really wants it, and some end up being good at it…  regardless, the goal of my military brethren is to make war violent at the precise point of most impact, and therefore quick so that more of the brethren can go back home.  We are lucky here that so few of us have needed to be involved – its not like that around the world. This is made possible and we are kept safe by rough men and women “on the borders” that you may never know. If interested, YHC would be happy to get some other veterans together to share what those brave souls go through with those that want to know.  

Get some!
