Stuff

When I came in this morning, people had already started to donate to the Care Package for the son of one of our employees. He does Special Ops for a group attached to the 82nd Airborne. Double Stuff Oreos and soap and sunscreen...

So this employee and a couple others and I were all talking about the war and we got into my Dad and Viet Nam and his reception when he came home and I actually started to cry. Wow, I wonder where that came from? Maybe the fact that he hasn't talked about it in 30 years and I've been afraid to upset him by asking about it for 30 years had something to do with it. My fellow employees were supportive anyway.

At lunch I tied Yellow, Red, Blue and White ribbons around our tree. At work I've got the letter sent by the Comanding General of the Marines to the First Marine Division, taped to my office door. Around it I put the four colored ribbons as well. This weekend I'll fly the American Flag and the Marine Corps flag and the POW flag and tie ribbons around the trees out front.

It has begun. Nothing I say will make any difference now so my only wish is they do thier jobs well and it is over with quickly so they can return home.

Peace,

Wander
