Do you really know how to forward e-mails? 50% do and 50% do not.
Do you wonder why you get viruses and/or junk mail? Do you like it? Every time you forward an e-mail there is information left over from the people who got the message before you, namely their e-mail addresses & names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor sap to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to… Continue

XEROX IS DOING SOMETHING COOL

A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life."That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

332nd Air Expeditionary Wing
JOINT BASE BALAD, Iraq - Air Force and Army medics here work as an integrated team to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injuries, two of the most common injuries to affect wounded warriors.

CAMP TAJI, Iraq – The month of October certainly kept the 848th Engineer Company out of Douglas, Ga., in the spirit of the Cobra motto, “Eight-Four-Eight is taking over!”
As another month is torn from the calendar on the company commander’s desk, Capt. Israel Brown, who hails from Macon, Ga., can’t help but think of all the great things the ‘Cobras’ have been doing.
It isn’t possible to review the many facets… Continue

CAMP KOREAN VILLAGE, Iraq - When it comes to basketball, you might expect to find a prospective pro on the court practicing jump shots and passes. You might find him at a pro combine running back rebounds with all he has left under the watchful eyes of scouts. Where you might not expect to find him is supporting the mission of a light-armored infantry battalion here in al Anbar province, Iraq.

Yokosuka, Japan -- When the submarine USS Ohio surfaced at sea and Machinist Mate 1st Class Jason Witty emerged from the hatch to look around, he saw calm, blue water under a peaceful sky -- perfect for the solemn task he was about to perform.
On the map, the Ohio was afloat in an indistinguishable expanse of the Pacific Ocean. As Witty stood on deck holding a silver pitcher, the vessel was alone.
Just like the ill-fated USS Indianapolis, 63 years earlier.

- One decision turned Chase Clark's life upside-down, but another is helping him realize the dreams he didn't think were possible.
While still in high school in rural Blackfoot, Idaho, Clark signed up for the Army National Guard because of the great benefits and the "opportunity to make something" of himself.
