America – These Days I’m Not So Sure
So Tiffany calls to say Erik got blasted again – no, not hit by schrapnel or an IED. He and an Afghan National were standing outside the area when a rocket hit nearby – killed the Afghan soldier, and rendered Erik unconscious. This makes about the fifth time he’s gotten a concussion in combat. So they’re looking at his medical records when they’re administering first aid, and lo & behold: Erik’s status before he left was such that he should never have been deployed. Ain’t that a kick in the head? Go figure on how many folks knew about this and said nothing. Needless to say, Tiffany is one angry gal, and I’m not even surprised at the wily ways of the good old American Army. Recall, their motto is: we don’t determine the demand, only the supply. Well – guess he needed to be part of the supply. Um hm um…Land of the free and home of the brave. Time to bring ’em home.
