Strange feelings
« on: May 16, 2008, 04:21:33 PM »

I served in the Army, in Vietnam, in 1970/71. I was in the Infantry, and every week, or two, or three, we would come back in from the field, and there would be a barbecue. We would have two days to shower, have a bit of bar-b-q chicken and some well needed alcohol before going back out to do it all over again.
This evening, I made some barbecue chicken, and asparagus, and some well needed Evan Williams Bourbon, and I found myself missing Vietnam.
Now, I didn't miss the shooting at people, and I sure DIDN'T MISS the people shooting at me, but, I guess, I missed the camaraderie of the time, and the friendships I made.

I'll buy you a chicken and asparagus dinner any time Barefoot.  I have no bourbon though.  Scotch do?

I believe that one of the reasons I frequent forums, like this, is the closeness I feel with the members. Though I may not meet many of you, the kinship, I experience, is similar to the kinship I felt to those who lived, fought, and sometimes, died along side of me.
For a time, we feel the same things, and fight the same fight. Ours, now, is the fight to save par, the fight to do the best we can at our chosen task. Thankfully, it is not the fight of old, though, I believe we would all rally to fight what is needed.

While I'm happy we don't have that particular kind of battle-forged camaraderie, I'm glad we have something.

BBQ for everyone!  And showers, even!
