ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Mission Accomplished - A Hero Returns

Well, last night was a joyous occassion... the return of my brother-in-law who has been serving in Qatar, Iraq, and Afghanistan. For the past six months he has been coordinating transportation for wounded soldiers and civilians out of Iraq & Afghanistan. Regardless of the branch of service or the country they serve for, my brother-in-law was tasked with getting them to facilities that could best handle their specific injuries. He received several awards (like a coin presented to him by General Abizaid for his performance evacuating the women MPs over the summer).

As I've said previously, be sure to keep all of the soldiers serving our country everywhere around the world in your prayers.
