My son called last night from Ft. Polk, and told us that their NCO's have denied the rumor that their brigade is headed to Iraq in May. Knowing that President Bush will remain at the helm, I have no qualms if Matt does get deployed to a combat zone; because his risk is for the great, good and noble cause of winning our war to destroy Jihadist terrorism against America.
Matt may have phoned me with that rumor in the first place, in order to move me off the fence. Up until November 2nd I was one of those undecided voters -- I was undecided whether to vote for President Bush on the way to work, or on the way home. Matt's call got me to the polls just after 6:00 AM.
