Iraq turns personal for me
I don't know whether I agree with the war or not, but I do know I support the Troops that are there doing the dirty work. This war became personal for me on Thursday at 2PM, when over 4000 soldiers from many states (2600 Minnesota) were in Camp Shelby, MS having the send off ceremony. By the end of this month, these fine young men and women will be in Kuwait, and will arrive at their bases in Iraq by late April. My brother in law is one of these soldiers.

Just released in Minnesota before Christmas, were these special license plates, and I am thinking about getting one of these in place of my normal plate. It's only $30 on top of my tabs, and when you break that down, I pay 8.2 cents a day to support veterans' organizations in Minnesota. A small price to pay compared to what they have paid.
