    This is very interesting to read. I heard it on the radio yesterday and didn't get around to searching for it until now.
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Every servicemember who has ever served in a combat zone has had the same thoughts and reflections. Fortunately, the vast majority will be able to silently keep those thoughts and never have to revel their fears, dreams, regrets and happy thoughts. Unfortunatly, as in Major Olmsteds case, his words were released because of his death. Every servicemember currently serving or who has served shares Major Olmstes families grief. There are a number of good books written containing letters from veterans written while serving from the civil war to the current conflict. Reading these letters can offer some solice to those suffering. RIP Major Olmsted, I salute you.
