Afternoon Musings

And, now for some odd blurbs from around the Blogosphere…

It seems there is a contest going on for Mil-bloggers. Op-For has the details. I love the idea. I wish more companies would do things like this!

In “fun things” military, Jarhead John shared these amusing conversations.
(…hard to believe Gunnies can be amusing…aint it?…)

El Capitan had a really good read, and some good links on the F-22. On a less than amusing note, El Capitan also reported on what our Militray Academies are turning out.
(…this is not good…this is not good at all…)

Finishing off on a much more solemn note, Thursday, these updates on two contacts were posted at Any Soldier:

Major Michael L. Mundell, 47, of Brandenburg, Ky, died January 5 in Fallujah, Iraq, of wounds suffered when an IED detonated near his vehicle during combat operations. Major Mundell was assigned to the 1st Brigade, 108th Division (Institutional Training), Spartanburg, SC.

Sgt. Aron C Blum, 22, of Tuscon, AZ, died December 28 at Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA, of a non-hostile cause after being evacuated from al-Anbar Province, Iraq, December 8. Sgt. Blum was assigned to Marine Air Refueler Squadron 532. Marine Aircraft Group 11, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, I Marine Expeditionary Forde, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, CA.

Our family joins Any Soldier in sending our prayers out for his families.

You see, we at our house remember your cry, Sgt. Vandling—the cry of all warriors:

“Tell them of us and say,
For their tomorrow, we gave our today.”
–The Kohima Epitaph–

We remember what you have given. And we say thank you for the tomorrows you have given others. May God give back to your family more than they have sacrificed and lost.

And, now, we dance In Memoriam.
