he was the liason to jsoc. after a career in the army, including getting his ranger tab, and doing cere, and 2 tours of iraq, and being a hero in afghanistan, it was the vids of danny pearl's execution that gave him ptsd.
anyway, at the time most of the fam got private ww tours. i was on the outs w them at the time, so i didnt.

my only brother was, and still is, on a crusade to get college credits for military training. his son wanted to be a nurse. said nephew convinced him that he could get no better training that to join the army, and be a medic. he ended up serving as a surgical nurse at walter reed.
but when he got out and returned to cali, he got zero credit for that, nor credentials. he applied to nursing school and was told he had to start at square one.

now, if an irishman like the ones in my family are on a mission, look out. just get out of the way.
so, in the ww, the only publicly available bathroom is the pres's bathroom.
brother knew this, so he penned a note about the bill that was later passed, then rescinded in cali.
he left it in obama's medicine cabinet.
after he got home, he got a visit from the secret service.

this post was prompted by a post just now about a threatening letter to biden and harris.
get out there, ss. lock those assholes up. rfn.
