Bzzzzzzy Bzzzzzzzy Bzzzzzy

Unpacking... sorting... cleaning... organizing... up to my eyeballs in MEB, MMRB, PEB, PEBLO, DVA, VASRD, USAPDA, AR635-40, AR40-501... it's a whole new vocabulary.


Also looking at some things... Can anyone tell me why someone with the following TBI screening responses has symptoms that according to some in the Army are insufficient to warrant additional screening?? And why this failure cannot be raised in the context of a PEB?


First picture of our next grandchild... Cute already, I can tell (grin)


Happy Birthday to the US Army (HOOAH!!) and Salute our Flag which flies with immense pride at our home 24/7/365. Hugs & love to Vinny & Robert... goodies are in the mail!

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

I also like this from Wikipedia:

The American's Creed is the official creed of the United States of America. It was written in 1917 by William Tyler Page as an entry into a patriotic contest. It was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives the next year.

The text of the American's Creed is:

I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the People, by the People, for the People; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; A democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many Sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of Freedom, Equality, Justice, and Humanity for which American Patriots sacrificed their Lives and Fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to Love it; to Support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to Respect its Flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

In closing, this from Arizona History: June 14, 1882:

And these things we demand of all politicians to take office: That thieving carpet-baggers must cease plundering the people of the South, and that savage Indians will not be shielded from punishment for crimes committed upon American citizens. The fierce passions engendered by the war, which have been fed to good purpose for foul objects, will be allayed, the 'Ship of State' will glide smoothly along.

Seems if we change a few words and we're still talking today...

That baby IS a cutie pie...take it from me. Thought the same thing about the 2 girls whose ultrasounds I saw and have two gorgeous girls now to back up my expertise in judging these things.

Congratulations!
