Editor’s note by Mr Lady at Whiskey In My Sippy Cup: I never imagined I’d feature a post from Red State Chief on Blog Nosh.  Though Nathan and I are close blogging friends, there are times when we simply cannot read each other’s sites because we live on two completely different political hemispheres.  To be frank; his blog pisses me off.  A lot.  But I respect the man he his, his service to this great nation and his dedication to his family and friends.  To me, that is the definition of a person, how they treat those they love.  I am thrilled beyond all words to feature my friend, a man who will be shipping off to Iraq in the near future to help rebuild their country and defend ours.  Thank you, Nathan.  Read his original post on Red State Chief.
