    It probably won't make your news so here's a heads up:

    PM - General Patraeus awarded by Australia 04/11/2009

    Re the date, we put the day then the month then the year, hope this avoids confusion.

    Thanks Oz! Very classy to recognize Gen. Petraeus.

    Of course, you're right Diuretic! I haven't seen it in our news. Thanks for sharing. :D

    The good General deserves it. He and his troops, did a great job in Iraq.

    :clap2: Our appreciation to Australia for all their support.:clap2:

    My appreciation to all our military....active, retired.....and especially those who gave all so that me and my twinlets can sleep safely in our beds at night (no matter where those beds are/were---the house we just lost or this little roach motel apt).
    :clap2:

    I'm particularly partial to Navy, my daughter is in NJROTC.

    Her Master Sergeant is awesome--he motivates that kid like nobody else has ever been able to. Once she hit the teen years she became a mouthy little thing and since she's been in ROTC, she's become quite the respectful (mostly) little Cadet~! She even salutes me in the mornings when she gets up (ok, so the smartass in her is still there....apple doesn't fall far from the tree). ;)

    Anyway....thanks US Military! Ya'll rock. :clap2:
