Another news item concerning a military person that you might have missed:
Nice if you can afford it.We didn’t have the money,so my mother had to carry my pack. Thanks,again mom!
Women demand equal rights and because of that carry on lady. A little different because I guess she is a paid employee but still. Women demanded equal rights and that is what men are giving them and still complain.....will women ever be happy? (JK).
why didn’t John Kerry think of that??
good grief. and I thought we were soft..
And some aren't!!
That picture has shaped a lot of my attitude toward marriage.
I don’t want to be that guy. I want to be his exact opposite.

What is the ethnicity/origin of the ‘Little Jim’ name?
Guess you wouldn't want to be in his shoes...
Poor guy. He's the REAL loser in this 'match made in heaven'.
I would rather carry my wife or carry for her. I would never leave the all the work to her (unless she insisted...).
Dunno. Only so many people can fit in the kitchen at the same time. Some things she’s good at, some things I am. Some I do just to take up the slack like laundry or cleaning up after dinner. So she does ‘cause I’m naturally lazy.
I’m firmly convinced that staying home with the kids is harder than going to work.
