Election Day

Lot's of chatter today about yesterday's historic election. And historic it was.

Record turnouts everywhere. Democracy broke out everywhere, in every community across the country.

But for the Red Falcons of the 82nd, who have been out in the field for 10 days, the soldiers patrolling in the deadly Korengal Valley, Afghanistan, to the Marines in Anbar, the airmen at Balad and the sailors at sea, it was just another day...another day at war.

And yesterday, we did our duty, which is why they do theirs.

'dad,

You are so right. I consider it an honor and a privilege to vote. So many other people in so many other countries do not have that right!

dad...your son's service is deeply appreciated and needed. As pops stated, it is an honor and a privilege to vote...but it is also a duty. What a great country we live in!
