Gah! & UGH! The batshitcrazyeyes is never fun, but zerging you then chasing you down the street? That's restraining order time. We have a few meatspace friends in common - based on how well I know them, I take it as a given that you're not a dick. Any batshitcrazyeyes or other are free to disagree, but not to assault you. Geez.

Thank you for this. The transition is a rough one; sometimes it's hard to stop fighting, and sometimes we stop fighting too soon. One of my docs asked me last week if I'd rather jump out a window or be eaten by a bear, and was surprised when I said bear - I explained that at least that I wouldn't just be giving up, I'd go down fighting. That desire to go down fighting, no matter what, is the only thing that's kept me from laying down of exhaustion the last few years. Sadly, some folks just get too damned tired of the fight but don't know how to do anything else. The more people like you and the other fine critters who blog here reach out, the greater the chance the tired ones who suffer will see that they have other options. Again, thank you.

My brother's currently stationed at Sharm El Sheikh. Got a surprise call from him a few days ago that I missed, haven't heard from him since. Thanks for the info here.

Thank you for this. He is most definitely still remembered.

Oh my the cute! She looks like my little Emmaline, now 85 lbs. (named after Emma Bull, tall, dark and gorgeous).

Just poked my bro on your behalf - he's in Illinois, I'm in Cali or I'd vote for you even though I'm not much of a Republican (I vote issues, not parties).

Glad to hear that. If you rolled a Tauren I'd have to be stirring up a fresh batch of BBQ sauce ;-P

I love this. My brother's become one of the poster boys for PTSD after serving in both Iraqi wars; unfortunately he doesn't live anywhere near the Phoenix area. If there are any more widespread, or nation-wide efforts I would greatly appreciate hearing about them. I don't trust the motives of most I've dug up on the intertubes, but I trust you as a source.

My deepest respect and gratitude to Sgt. Woods, and my deepest condolences to his family. It's a damned shame the sheriff had to spend time educating that whiny waste of plasma, but my gratitude and respect to him for responding the way that he did.
