Oohrah! Congrats to PFC Stinson, and sincere appreciation this New Years Day to all of our men and women in uniform who have answered the call to duty and proudly serve our great nation.

Congratulations, Josh. Semper Fi, brother! And to you and the Colonel, too, Toni. Next up: How about sea duty on a nice, big, roomy aircraft carrier based in some exotic port, with three hots and a rack with clean sheets? Beats humping hills.
