"the gift that keeps on giving" I know right like a case of gental herpies. I'm afraid even when the shit is over the stain from it will never come out.

My buddy who was out 4-5 years was called back to serve in Iraq. He lost his private law practice as a result. Sucks, but he's the type that didn't let it bother him. He's now an Assn't. Federal Public Defender here in town now. Still with Uncle Sam.

His wife is still afraid to check the mailbox.  Sad

My circumstances are similar to the guy in the story except that  I've been off active duty for 20 years now and my reserve unit was called up for desert storm 3 months after I was discharged from the guard. I was in the same type of artillery unit (Pershings and Lance missiles) he was in. If they called me back after 20 years that would be a good laugh, that had to be a random number pull.
