I do agree that we seem to be getting no where,you are not changing my opinnion and I am not changing yours,but that is not my intention in the first place,my intention is and was to throw light on a subject that needs to be addressed,it needs to be addressed by the public,it needs to be talked about and it most certainly needs to be fixed by the military and government.It's not that I think that the military is doing NOTHING about it,but in my opinnion they are not doing ENOUGH about it,I also strongly disagree with mr.Timothy Smith,this subject has little or nothing to do with OURECHO and it most definitely does not drag this site into the dirt,what it DOES have to do with is the fact that most people are reluctant to speak about it,want to hush it up and stop anyone else from broaching the subject,if Mr.Smith considers this DIRT,then maybe Mr.Smith needs to broaden his out look on life.As for myself,I will continue to post on this subject as long as people keep trying to make me shut up about it.
All that aside,Fred I appreciate the fact that you like and read my Uncle Fossill stories and I value your critique of my writing,I do not hold any ill will for anything said in here or else where,you,like myself,have an opinnion,I value any ones opinnion whether or not I agree with it and am willing to listen and discuss anthing with anyone with one exception,the one exception being is when my opinnion is considered less worthy than the next persons and I am told,in effect,to be quiet,stand down or step aside.
Fred,I thank you for your 20 years in service to our country,I thank your nephews for thier service also and I am proud to have served myself.We do have a great military of which i too am very grateful.
Bob Mitchum
