I have the greatest respect for the soldiers who are in this unit. I know I would never have been able to make the cut.
In all my travels over the years, I've never been to Washington or the surrounding area. My natural disdain and disgust of most of the elected officials in Washington have kept me away.
I guess I'm gonna have to break down and take a week or so and just go.
