    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Jarrods best friend just left to go back for 13 months. His Job: The Morgue
    Jacobs Very good friend's husband just Went back also. His Job: Clearing IED's

    I spoke with both these young men and the difference in there continuance between there friends and them just makes one very proud of them as if they were my own.

    Thanks for posting this. They have come a long way since VN and even back than they were heroes. A dedicated, caring group that risk their lives daily. God bless them.

    Can't thank 'any' of them enough for what they do...Thanks for this!

    Wow, that puts things in a whole other light. Makes me rethink the stress I think I have in my job each day...nothing compared to this.

    These people are indeed true heroes!

    well talking to my son who just got back due to the nature of whats going on over in the middle east and the fact that the Navy has deployed 2 carrier groups to Japans as well as having units are standing by Libia and other countries in the region his unit is on alert and could be called to deploy on a moments notice...

    There is not much to say that hasn't been said by others. Heroes indeed.
