  • Coming Home Soon

    I've just learned all of my son's men are already Stateside. He has to stay in Afghanistan while he transitions his command to the new officer. He is hoping to spend Halloween night trick or treating with his 3-kids.

          I guess I missed them over here in WTF-istan. I still have a few months to go before I'm shipped home. Although, a good enough reason to voluntarily extend for three month cropped up recently. However, it rides on how well my emplyer is doing back home, and if my command will even approve it. Damn I'm torn over this, I'm already forced to miss all of the Holidays, combined with the thought of at least coming home right before my birthday, does make the ride home something to look forward to. But, a new construction project to install some fancy, high end equipment that is directly related to my trade, is an experience that is hard to pass up. Sure I'll get bounced around the country, but such trips does make deployments much faster.

          As for 007:

                Mark,

                I can only imagine how happy you and your wife (and all your family) must feel about this great news of having your son home very soon.

                May all of our sons and daughters and their families be filled with such joy as soon as possible.

                While I know that our nation is proud, it will also be overjoyed when all of our families are once again together,

                  khoa007,

                  I see you have retracted your post.... so, I'll lighten up on my sharp response:

                  I do think you need to be more considerate, especially when it comes to commenting in a negative manner to those who have scrificed so much and whose family and friends are serving with the utmost honor for their country. And that means people like you and I.

                  I still think you shamed yourself, but perhaps have taken that back after reconsideration. It is good that you've thought it over.

                      On looking at my post in this thread Mark I see that you have edited out Khoa007 post the I quoted and as silly as it was it should have been allowed to stand as it showed the mentality of this person I have found this to be a vary informative forum but censorship shouldn`t be part of it.

                          I sort of agree with you. I'm not sure that censorship is necessarily the correct term all of the time when Mark deals with some of these situations that come up. From what I perceive from his actions is that he is not consistent in his actions. Some threads just get locked and their content is allowed to stay up, others have insulting content where no action is taken at all and in this case just individual posts are deleted. Picking what is acceptable and what isn't shouldn't be a flying by the seat of ones pants experience.

                            Do we know that Mark deleted the post? I was more of the impression that the originator might have just deleted it after second thoughts.

                            Perhaps that's not the case, but I do know that if I was the writer of such thoughts, on a second read I would have found it embarrassing enough to delete it, before it got copied.

                              In the past when Mark has deleted or edited a post he has said so. I don't think this time would have been any different.
