Below is an excerpt from an email of a good friend of mine. He is stationed in Kuwait at the moment. I'm kinda using this board for the moment to say thanks to our troops. My friend busts his arse everyday for us - yet manages to find comedy in everything. I admire what he's doing along with folks like DT, Kasper, SVBadguy and others on the board that have served and will serve. Thanks - you guys rock.

From my friend Dan:

"I’ll be happy to let you all know that after five
minutes or so of very deep introspection I’ve come up
with the secret to happiness. I’m only going to share
it with you because you are a trusted loved one
and I know that you won’t misuse this precious
precious gift. I know you are saying “But
Dan… everyone is different unique snowflake… how can
there be a single answer?” If you think this you are
obviously deranged. No, the secret to happiness is
Beer. Don’t believe me? Try drinking a near beer at a
BBQ.

That little nugget of wisdom aside I’m ready to tackle
other issues near and dear to my heart. I should be
doing the mountain of paperwork I have sitting under,
on top of, beside, and inside of my desk. Not
kidding... I have about 200 questionnaires to enter in
the computer, which translates to about 10 hours of
work. Instead I plan on discussing in a depth entirely
inappropriate for anyone…. my pants.

It is so hot and humid that my pants have been
declared a protected wetlands. I have sweat more in
the past two weeks than the rest of my life combined.
I would cut out vital parts of my anatomy right now
just to experience a cold rain. Of course I have about
as much likelihood of that happening as I do of having
a beer… mmmm…. Beeeeeer.

Sorry… where was I? Oh yes… hot… hot and sweaty. Of
course I’m not nearly as bad off as the new boat unit
that just came in. Poor poor bastards. They just came
from Everett via San Diego and instead of getting
acclimatized they’re getting to get right to work.
Which of course means that I will get to work when
they all fall out from heat exhaustion. I can’t
express how lucky I feel that we got a ramp up before
this heat. Having to come from Washington to Allah’s
purgatory at this time of year would be less than fun.
Of course the guys who just came in also just had
beer… and more importantly they brought things like
clothing and gas masks instead of bringing beer…
mmmm….. beer… so maybe this is God punishing them for
their lack of foresight. (Although I did not bring
beer either and God rewarded me with candy and a trip
to Disneyland… but then I’m delusional and have ducks
nesting in my pants)

I should apologize at this point that my letter is
even more rambling and disjointed than usual. This is
partly due to fact that I’ve been squeezing in writing
it between meetings and silly sick people. It’s also
due to the fact that the longer I’m here the more
random my thoughts become. For example today I did my
level best to convince those around me that instead of
“being nice” and greeting all the new people with
smiles, handshakes and acts of politeness that instead
it might be smarter to be a little more circumspect.
We don’t really know these people… for all we know
they could all be puppy killing psychos who steal
money from old people. That’s why instead I suggested
that every time we see a person we don’t know we
should scream “STRANGER DANGER” and punch them in the
face. I was pleasantly surprised when a Senior Chief
we didn’t know walked in and Drew screamed “STRANGER
DANGER”…. Our Senior Chief didn’t find it NEARLY as
funny as we did. Oh well….
On a more pleasant note I got my first anthrax shot
today. As an aside they are lots and lots of fun. The
shot itself doesn’t hurt at all… then about thirty to
forty seconds later your arm feels like it’s on fire
while a knot the size of my head forms at the
injection site. I’ve actually had to take my shirt off
since it won’t fit any more. Due to the size of the
protuberance I’ve drawn a face on it, found an extra
hat that fits, and named it Stan. Occasionally he
spits out a disgusting greenish discharge but other
than that he’s relatively polite.
Ok… a whole bunch of maniacs just came in… I think
I’ll write about the maniacs in the next letter. Miss
you a lot. Take care and write back when you can.
Daniel"

I literally laughed out loud several times reading his letter. God bless him for doing what he does and for making me laugh out loud today.

I look forward to his letters so much - he's extremely witty. He's a great writer, but wants to be a doctor - go figure

That was great. I know quite a few witty doctors it makes stuff less painful when they can keep you laughing.
