My goal for SOFREP has always been to take this website somewhere new and different. It would be too easy, and too boring, for us all to just sit on our asses and type away on our computers for years on end. We could do one blog post after the next about gays in the military, women in the military, sexual harassment in the military, and tell a bunch of war stories from back when we were active-duty soldiers. “…and that’s how we did it in Iraq” gets really lame after a while.
As time goes on, our experiences fade into the background and become less relevant. We become less relevant. While we are using our G.I. Bill and living it up back in the good old US of A, the world continues to turn. It reminds me of Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now when he is flipping out in his hotel room. He thinks something like, “Every moment I’m in here, I get weaker, and every moment Charlie spends squatting in the jungle, he gets stronger.” Ain’t that the truth.
