Marie is home from Kuwait/Iraq, and will take on a stateside assignment here in California. She and Justin are with us for a while this week in San Luis Obispo.

This crazy conflict in Iraq has cost a lot more than most people thought when we went in. We are lucky that we have not been faced with a tragic loss of a dedicated and talented soldier and daughter.

The ones who have borne and are bearing the true burdens of this mistaken adventure come home, (the lucky ones) to a homeland where the citizens have not been asked to sacrifice seriously.
No draft, no special war tax, no rationing, no sweat, no danger.
