You guys and girls all do a wonderful job, being an 12 year man in the 70's and 80's , I thought i knew how tough it could be, Northern Ireland and the riots we saw must be a walk in the park compared to Iraq.
Been chatting to a mate of mine who's currently home on leave from Herrick. My experiences in N.I. rank as next to bugger all compared to some of what he has recounted to me, both from there and Iraq. It's fairly difficult to convey how proud I am of both him and all you blokes and ladies doing the job without me sounding like some sort of oul homo. Know that despite what often may seem the case, some of us at home do give a shite. My own and my family's thoughts are with you all.
If as many of us as possible can 'think and thank' our Servicemen and Servicewomen, it might be possible, that by a process of thought transference, to influence the way our bone-headed and arrogant government behaves.
