“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

At peace

The remains of Scott Speicher, missing in action for 18 years, have been recovered and identified in Iraq. At last his family will have some closure, and be able to lay him to rest.

Thanks to those members of the armed forces and those civilians who never forgot the need to keep searching, and to leave no man behind.

Rest in peace sir, with our thanks for your sacrifice.
