    Daddy did his 13 mos. in Nam in '69 in the Air Force. His Father was a Korean War Vet, Army, then Air Force. My wife is a Desert Storm Vet. She served before we met.

    Re: Have you or a family member served in the military

    My husband's deploying to Afghanistan in April. I find his timing very suspicious as we'll be having our first kid two months later. Methinks someone is avoiding diaper duty with a different duty.

    That must be hormones making you think irrationally....surely he would prefer changing dirty diapers than getting into situations where he might need to change his own skivvies afterwards....

    Congrats on your upcoming addition. Here's to keeping good vibes going out to your husband on his upcoming tour.
    Fool me once, shame on you.

    Oh yeah, he is a marine, I forgot that for a moment....
    I saw a short video about a new weapon that has ammo that can be set to explode behind a target, so the enemy can hide behind whatever and it won't save their asses....
    Technology is fun....
