An e-mail from my pal Lt. Col. Marc, recently deployed to Baghdad after reactivating from his retired status:
Hugh,I have been listening to your show over the internet when I have time. I tried to listen some everyday at Ft Benning and I heard your comments about us Golden Oldies going off to war. I greatly appreciate your comments and want you to know that having your support for our going helps to define why we are doing this. Thank you. By the way I am 55 years old. But we have some over here that are 59 and one Dr who is in uniform and is 76 years old. I will try to continue to listen as soon as I get my communications systems up.Merry ChristmasMarc
This Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I will add some particular prayers of Thanksgiving and for protection for Marc and his family and for all the men and women serving this country in far off places.
