...with dead things.
Much ado about nothing. You should see some of the photos I've seen of some of our boys and what they were doing in them, from Viet Nam, to today.
Folks, the world of a soldier is bizarre, and surreal. You cannot understand it just from watching movies, or reading books, even if a soldier has written it.
Some police shows and movies have gotten pretty close, but even then, the world of the cop is as closed to most of you as it is possible to imagine. Even cops wives don't have a clue as to what really goes on when their husband suits up and gets to work.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, if you want the dirty work done, and don't want to or can't do it yourself, just shut the fuck up and get out of the way of people who are willing and capable of doing it.
