To: Taxman; RaceBannon
Salute to you Taxman (gag!), and I know of your service, and yours, Race. Thanks for bringing this thread from Major General Mattis. From a recently retired old Army guy, I know that the General will agree that we are graced to know in these days the finest young men and women who have ever served in uniform, who are fit to be among those who carried America's cause from the beginnings. The families of Patriots are patriots, and back here holding the rear. So God speed you to victory and to home.

Thanks, Gopherit! My FR "handle" is derived FRom my National Retail Sales Tax advocacy. I have always liked the play on words my handle and my NRST advocacy convey. BTW, not being a Beetles (sic) fan, I did not know of their song until about two years ago!
Thank you for your service. I like your "handle."
Wish I were young enough to re-up! Would I have loved to have had such strong leadership in WDC when I was on active duty in the late 60s, early 70s! Vietnam would be a FRee country today today had LBJ and Nixon and their inner circle advisors asked the military leadership "What do you need to win this war?" And then given it to them and stood out of the way while brave rough men killed people and broke things!
"W" and his inner circle have got this one right -- "Stay the course" works for me!
Hanoi John Effing Kerry and his anti-American LIEberal/Socilist/Marxist Bastard fellow travelers (nee "useful idiots!") should have been silenced in 1971, but weren't, and the politicians caved.
Theye must be silenced now, and we must stay the course!
