Heartwarming Holidays in the Military

12/19/2008 - U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Heath Bahyi observes boxed cargo being air-dropped from a C-130 Hercules aircraft over the island of Yap Dec. 19, 2008, during Operation Christmas Drop. The drop, which is the Air Force’s longest-running humanitarian mission, is part of a tradition to deliver supplies to the remote islands Yap, Palau, Chuuk, Pohnpei and the Northern Marianas Islands. More than 180 boxes were built for the humanitarian mission, making 2008 one of the largest drops in the operation’s 57-year history. Bahyi is a loadmaster from the 36th Airlift Squadron, Yokota Air Base, Japan. (DoD photo by Master Sgt. Kevin J. Gruenwald, U.S. Air Force/Released) VIRIN: 081219-F-6911G-353

GM in bankruptcy?

Guess that's what's next since the feds aren't planning to help save the last manufacturing industry in America. Too many lawyers and financial types in Congress? Wall Street gets help, but not manufacturing. We can't all work in the service industry, can we? And, isn't it a national security threat when you have to rely on foreign countries for major manufactured goods? Not to mention the millions, yes, millions, of Americans this will affect as the ripples turn into a tsunami.

My Dad (a Chevrolet dealer from 1958 until he died in 1991; now my brother runs the dealership) must be turning over in his grave. I plan to sign up for Chinese lessons tomorrow.
