“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

Techs out for a walk

Article and pictures here about military EOD technicians - the roots of our nationwide community - doing a fundraising walk to build an addition to the EOD memorial at Eglin AFB in Florida.

The sad fact is that the memorial has reached capacity for the names to honor fallen technicians, brave men and women who have given their lives rendering safe devices world wide. It's nice to see the community coming together to do something to help remember those who came before.

If you are so inclined here is the link to the EOD Memorial Foundation, which accepts donations from those who wish to help.
