Thanks, Matt, for sharing Nathan's letter. It was very informative to hear the opinions of the "man on the street", knowing we never truly get their viewpoint in any news media.

Mike, thanks for sharing another great dog. Caddy looks perfect in every way and as J said, very good size. Yesterday, I saw a working dog up close and he was gorgeous, black head (a regular Shepherd) but, quite the size diff as he was large.
I'll echo others: when it is possible would love to see updates on these fine animals.

Most interesting, Will. Expect the unexpected and make no mistake, Putin is ruthless, rememberng the motherland of old. At one time we were stationed in Garmish at the Russian Institute and lived across the hall from the ex-head of the KGB who then taught at the Institute (defector).

@HonestBroker247 @TxazzHB, it did not work at my house either growing up or raising my own. You ate what was on your plate and that was that.

@HonestBroker247 HB, a kid would whine and cry saying I'm hungry in order to get sympathy and other food given to him rather than the veggies set before him. Strange, I admit but, then our lil critters are sometimes strange but, more often spoiled these days and too pampered. Come on now, it's the truth!

@YankeePapa @LawyerHandleAppreciate your comment, YP. Israel still abides by "In G-D we trust" and they fight to win or else the country dies. It's like a big family, not a small country and they fight on home turf. There are memorials throughout the land where soldiers were lost bringing their own home.

@Recon6 @YankeePapa@majrod@ArcticWarrior6, you are still a Warrior fighting the same battles but, with different weapons.
I was surpised as all get out to see any negotiations on behalf of BB (the answer to Gitmo). This ruthless administration must see some political gain as they so easily left 4 of our own Americans who were serving their country (one in high office) and made no effort to rescue them, not even a telephone call. It was happenstance the wounded and bodies were recovered. They dishonored those remains by standing over the coffins and outright lying to the families standing beside them.
It would be a good thing to see BB freed and returned home but, hopefully not at the cost of any rescuers.
I so appreciate all the comments herein and different viewpoints.
Kerry, you get the gold star award in my book for sharing Stacy as Warrior of the Week. She not only served her country in the Army but, still serves her country by being the best ever military spouse. Very often these spouses are the hidden heroes as well as raising our future Warriors of the Week. Having been a military spouse in times of war, I salute your choice. You go Stacy!

Fantastic idea, Nick, and expecting to see some follow-up. Do it and document it. Miss seeing you over here on this side. Checking out Amanda's site.

Phenomenal, Mikal, and as a winner, you are showing others how they can get freedom, healing and win their lives back. What a testimony of saving your life and regaining it - without pills. Scary how our doctors think that pills are the answer - only too willing to experiment on our vets. Had a friend who fought for years to get off the meds the VA gave him - had just gotten free when the effects of that scourge took him down. Keep talkin', Mikal!

@Altiora72Feb 12 Government watchdog Judicial Watch
has released an unclassified map showing the military fleet positions
the night of the 9/11 Benghazi terror attack. The map shows dozens of
military ships, including two aircraft carriers and 13 destroyers, were
stationed in the North Africa Area of Responsibility when radical
Islamic militants stormed the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing four
Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens. Diplomatic Security
agent David Ubben, a survivor of the attack, waited severely wounded on a
roof with Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for 20 hours before help arrived. Woods and Doherty were killed during the waiting period.
