Around the news dial

Been on the road again a lot lately, so I haven't much time to post. I am hoping things will be slowing down a bit over the holidays. SGT Mark has a 4-day leave and will be home for Thanksgiving.

Fayetteville, home to Ft. Bragg and Pope AFB, is trying re-brand itself into the "world's first sanctuary for soldiers." Time magazine has written a short story about the city that used to be called Fayettenam. You can read about it here.

The Pentagon has started a new project called Troop Tube, a You Tube of sorts but for service members and their families. Newsweek has written a short piece on how it works.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It is very cold here for North Florida (record setting freezing temperatures overnight).

For a guy on the road a lot you seem to find plenty of time to read. Laying around in them motel rooms will do that to you. At least the motels usually have up to date mags. My Drs. office are always about 3 years old. Hey, did you know the Jets beat the Colts! That's about the newest mag in my Drs. office. LOL LOL

There is another reason why I have lots of time for reading but I probably shouldn't mention it here. :)


Should be a nice holiday. We are more than ready.
