Greg:

Once again, you made my day! It's great to see photos of Trevor and have a reference point that he's still OK. Something I live each day for during deployment. This definitly cheered me up on one of my more trying days without Trevor's presence. You're right, life goes on and as wives of reservists, we are isolated and alone. Saying good-bye at 2am in the morning standing outside a building is not my idea of a send off. I feel fortunate to have Lucy and hope to get together with Lucy and Danna again soon. I can hold down the fort but look forward to Trevor's return. With all the car break downs, flooding, home repairs, & medical issues that arose while Trevor's been away, I realize how great it is to have him to share my life with during the good and bad times. I can't say enough how proud I am of you, Trevor and Russ, along with every other service member proudly serving our country at home and abroad.

God Bless,
"The General"

That is beautiful, Greg.

Greetings!
Just got directed your way by Hugh Hewitt.com as Mudville Gazette has rotated out. Once again, Hugh has not steered me wrong. I can already tell that I'll appreciate reading your blog.

Stay safe and thanks for all you do,
Smiles,

P.S. Unless it keeps you from putting food on the table or a roof over your family's head, it has been my observation [I'm not married] that you should always send flowers (or something) for v-day! Every woman who has ever said to me "I told him not to send flowers" always says "he never sends me flowers!. :-)

We often think to thank the men in the field. Thank you also to the women and children making the sacrifices at home.

Man, you are so cool...and so good with words. I really admire you Greg. You & Lucy are lucky to have each other. LYMYMI ;)

Dear Greg,
PLEASE tell Trevor to lose the funny mustache!! I know the General agrees with me on this...
Love Courtenay, the annoying little sister

I'm actually a fan of the mustache.... but I'm not a blood relative, so Courtney probably trumps me.

Greg: two words: true class.

I was brought up in a Lifer's family - my old man retired a Ltc. - Hope you're keeping your head down, but just thought you and your fellow soldiers should keep abreast of what your Commander in Chief is up to behind your backs.
This is from a posting of mine today. The story was reported in numerous palces this week as the President's budget is sifted through.
=================================================
Bush Budget Screws Veterans.
While raising bonuses with his right hand to people signing up and re-upping into the military, Bush with his left hand is taking away something a good many of our returning Veterans will need when they return. Help with their disabilities particularly help with housing.

Veterans with spinal cord injuries, missing limbs, etc. (wheel chair dependent).
Bush proposes stopping financing the construction of new housing for physically handicapped ands those with mental illness. This is just part of his 50% reduction in the housing budget for people with disabilities. This will not(yet)effect those Veterans that will have to be "warehoused" in Veterans facilities across the country, as was done during and for decades after the Vietnam War. Unfortunately some our returning Vets will be non-functioning vegetables.

The White House proposes issuing "vouchers" to the disabled; basically making them compete with able-bodied folks looking for section 8 housing. Section 8 housing does not address people with special concerns. Section just encourages landlords to take disadvantaged, like those families living in shelters. So if you are a Vet with a spinal cord injury, say with no use of your legs, you can now go head to head with an able bodied family without special needs for the same apartment. Why would the landlord take on a disabled vet or anyone for that matter? These people require ramps and god knows what other changes to the physical structure of the apartment and maybe even the actual building itself.

What would Jesus do, Mr. President? We know he never healed anyone, his deeds were just transcribed incorrectly. He actually was noted for maiming the poor, so they could be better positioned for begging. As it is written in Matthew 10:23,
"It is easier to give less to the least and therefore gain more for oneself."

Ahhhhh, what the heck: I know somebody Hugh links to. Well, that's it I guess I'm going to have to launch my blog, too. It will have to include my favorite picture of my wife and I which, oddly, came from YOUR wedding.

Nice job, sir!!!

Greyhawk sent me and I'm glad he did. I'll look forward to your posts.
Thanks to you and your families from me and mine.
I believe my girls are safer and have a better future because of the hard and dangerous work you all are doing.
There are alot of people in the blogosphere watching out for you guys. The moonbats are getting smacked around pretty good.
Keep us informed and let us know if we can help.

Found the blog via Mudville......
