I came across a really interesting blog today by way of an email note I received. I am supporter of the Friends Committee on National Legislation. Actually, I’m a poor supporter of FCNL. I don’t send them as much money as I should, but I surely appreciate the causes that they represent and witness for. In today’s electronic correspondence came a link for the Quaker’s Colonel. The blog is written by Col. Dan Smith, US Army (Ret.). a West Point graduate and Vietnam veteran, is the Senior Fellow on Military Affairs for the Friends Committee on National Legislation (Quakers). See his complete bio on FCNL’s web site. I encourage you to read what he has to say. It’s a voice we don’t often hear and from a professional soldier.
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines all hold a special place in my heart as I am a proud VietNam era veteran of the United States Navy. Peace.
