I've decided to give the new Blogger template method a try, and downloaded a new template from The Blogger Workshop. I like the three column layout ... now I just have to figure out how to get stuff where I want it.

Oh, fark. First I missed SWWBO's birthday (but the Armorer caught it, natch), and then I forgot Princess Crabby's, and was fired again, for the nth time. And now I realize that I didn't get a post up yesterday for Bad Cat Robot's Natal Day.

Denizen and Soldiers' Angel Kat highlighted a special need in today's H&I post at Castle Argghhh:

It's good to know that there are tributes and memorials to our four-footed troops.

"Fisher House provides temporary lodging in a caring environment that allows military and veterans' families to face a medical crisis together. This program has served more than 100,000 families and saved them more than $80 million since it began in 1990."
If you want to keep up with Jack Army these days, you need to check two sites. He is now guest posting at the VAJoe site as well. Check out his post Will We or Won't We?
And here's a site that lets you send a brew to deployed troops ... Six Packs for Soldiers. Heck - this way even a MWD (Military Working Dog) can get in on the donating!

It's interesting to find someone you know pictured on the front page of the newspaper. I met Terry Harder last year at one of the bridge support / counter-protest events, to counter the Watada supporters.
Terry Harder: "I had seen the Vietnam War, and I did not like what it did to our country."
Good work, Terry, and everyone at Operation Support our Troops.
Go visit Castle Argghhh, and read the letter from Chaplain (Major) John L. Kallerson - the senior Chaplain at Walter Reed.
I have had enough and am going to give my perspective on the news about Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Please understand that I am speaking for myself and I am responsible for my thoughts alone. The news media and politicians are making it sound like Walter Reed is a terrible place and the staff here has been abusing our brave wounded soldiers; what a bunch of bull!

Among the DoD press releases yesterday, I was glad to see this from Secretary Gates:
Defense Secretary's Message to the Troops: Care for Wounded Soldiers
He's talking the talk, and so far he's walking the walk. There is much to accomplish, and I know I'm not alone in concern that some new bright, shiny thing will take the media spotlight off and the bureaucratic machine will take over again.
One suggestion, Mr. Gates. If you haven't done so already, create a panel of wounded soldiers like Chuck who will tell you the real story, and make sure that they are included in the checkpoint process. If you aren't listening to the men and women who have been in the system in the past 4 years, you won't hear all that you need to.
