    Thanks, Phred.

    I think the one statistic that really got me was the 5 tours in Vietnam. You only went once - unless you volunteered. Douglas was in the Air Force, and volunteered for a 2nd tour.

    Robert Howard volunteered for 4 extra tours!!

    This was on the news last night. Sgt. Ware leaves behind his parents, his wife and three young children. His father wept when he spoke on camera about trying to keep Christmas normal for the children. I know a lot of hearts went out to that family last night from people who saw it on the 10 o'clock news.
