An Honorable Salute to You Evan

My friend Evan is shipping out today with the United States Navy to serve in Bahrain until December 2007. He will be a member of the Military Police while in the country. Bahrain is a relatively safe country, but it's in the heart of the Middle East, so being safe in that environment is kind of tongue-in-cheek. I respect him very much for doing something so noble as serving in the military in the times we live in now. So many people want to bash our leaders and spout off what they think will solve the world's problems. And all too often that is at the expense of our armed forces. I commend Evan for standing up for his country and for it's people in the face of such adversity. He's a great friend and I will miss him. Join me in saluting his bravery and honor!

Brave is Evans middle name. Evan uses a nightlight, not because he is scared of the night, because the night is scared of Evan! I am going to really miss him too while he is away. Lets make a vacation trip to Bahrain, what do you say?
