    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Honing the knives, Cleaning the longguns, Stocking up ammo.

    Socialism tries to give the slave all the advantages of his security together with the benefits of freedom, and, in the process, destroys both the free and the enslaved.

    Have a safe trip home and enjoy your family.

    I am here for another 7 months, and even then I may sign on for another 1 year contract; with the economy the way it is back home it is hard to say no to a secure job; and one that pays this kind of money (with $90,000+ being income tax exempt to boot).

    Thanks, OPFOR; if you are ever in san antonio, the door is always open and the beer is on me...

    Too bad you have to come home to a fool in the White House who is apologizing for all that you and the guys in green do, but don't worry we can change things starting in 2010....
