Military - My Razored Flesh
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
So, I just found out that my brother is deploying. He joined the reserves again for some extra income and they had him on alert, now they say he is deploying on Wed. He's not sure where they are sending him yet, but hopefully, it's not Iraq.

Prevailing Condition: distressed distressed

I'm sorry to hear that. My dad was in the reserves when the first Gulf War came around and they snatched him up and sent him to Iraq and I didn't see him for 2 years :(

Thank you. I was raised a military brat almost my entire life. I grew up in the military mentality. I understand why they exist, but I think they should only be used for just causes. It's unfortunate that they took your father away from you for 2 years. That sucks.

We should just get out of Afghanistan and Iraq, 1 - They don't want us there, 2 - If we turned both countries over to their new governments, then why are we still there?

We should have closed our borders, pulled ALL funding from ALL nations and only had a domestic military LONG time ago.

Yeah, since the 'communist threat' is all but gone these days.
