Happy Birthday, Army!

Last night we watched the movie The Great Raid. As a wife, I find watching movies like that extremely sobering, for there's no way to feel sorry about 15 month OIF deployments once you've imagined your husband a Bataan Death March POW. There's nothin' like a healthy dose of Perspective.

Absolutely about the perspective.

Consider the perspective that it brings to those of us who *don't* have a husband (or wife) in uniform! That movie was hard to watch, but absolutely necessary ... and humbling.
