Defend Arlington

So I was at Arlington last week to lay wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns for Soldiers' Angels

Arlington

With SA, on our way out, I told the group I needed some alone time to visit someone.  You can see me (below) taking the photo in the reflection of the tombstone for COL Thompson, but you can't see the tears streaming down my face.

Every time I go to Arlington, I visit a friend.  Or in this case, a man who bears much responsibility for who I am today.  He's in section 30, 611.  If you went to Mary Lincoln's tomb, he's directly across from her on a nice little ridgeline.

Over at This Ain't Hell, the manager of the Blackfive Farm Team, has a post about TroopRally needing people to help counter Fred Phelp's Westboro Church group that protests military funerals.  Westboro jackwagons are there on Tuesday, October 5th, from 430-530pm.

Go here to find out the details on how you can help.

IMPORTANT:  Remember that the Westboro lunatics really want someone to lose their cool and hit one of them so that they can sue the assaulting party.  It's how they stay in business...it's their business model, rather than their belief in god, that drives them to this level of insanity.

And none of my Fallen brothers would want you to end up in court over them, either.  Defend them, certainly.  But don't fall for the Phelps trap.  Believe me, I would have a difficult time resisting the urge, but please take the high road here.
