Jimmy went back to Iraq

Jimmy is a medic. Jimmy is also one of the guys that I played ball with. He is just short of 34 and a much better basketball player than I am. Until 9-11 he was a software engineer who made a very nice living.

After the towers fell he decided that he needed to help defend the country so he went and enlisted in the army.

Meanwhile, a stray thought: Jimmy and others like him will be spit upon and otherwise insulted by the "progressives" of all ilks when back home - just for doing what they believe in. Like the Vietnam veterans before them and many, too many others.

Think about it.
