Gentlemen, my apologies for the tone of my previous comment and specifically to those of you that have served our great country.
That was posted after a day of mulching all of the beds on the property and the subsequent rehydrating with a substantial quantity of dark porter. I logged in late last night and took great exception to the comments in this thread.
I am long retired now but occassionally comments like this will bring parts of my personality into play that are not suitable for mixed company but served me well in more primitive places and times. Such was the case with my original response.
So, my apologies again to my brothers-in-arms. I'll be glad to buy you all a beer and argue this and many other topics in the enlisted club, as we did those many years ago.
Well done, Sir. It takes a very BIG man to utter 3 LITTLE words - "I was wrong." My hat's off to you!
