In Moot Member Blogs Excellent point on the military - past/future Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I saw an interesting bit today (linked on a political magazine's blog, and referencing the Iraq theater) about soldiering. It is a really good read from a former soldier (or a Marine, I'm not sure). Here is the money quote for me:

Quote:
Then it hit me. Proust had his why-bother cookies, but it's the smell of mess-hall grease in the morning that takes me back. As more soldiers and Marines materialized from the transit-camp tents, headed for the funky latrines or lining up early for chow, I was home again, back in the world in which I'd spent most of my adult life.

There's a timelessness to the military that outsiders will never quite understand.
Ain't it true....

Sorry, I forgot the other money quote :

But veterans of all our services and of all our wars will be relieved to know that the coffee's as bad as ever.
