23. After Patís Birthday
worth reposting

It is Patís birthday on November 6, and elections are the day after. It gets me thinking about a conversation I had with Pat before we joined the military. He spoke about the risks with signing the papers. How once we committed, we were at the mercy of the American leadership and the American people. How we could be thrown in a direction not of our volition. How fighting as a soldier would leave us without a voiceÖ until we got out.

Much has happened since we handed over our voice:

Somehow America has become a country that projects everything that it is not and condemns everything that it is.
