To a Frenchman.....

Thanks to you.....for writing this, your perspective on your interaction with American Troops in the Afghan........

"Heavily built, fed at the earliest age with Gatorade, proteins and creatine - they are all heads and shoulders taller than us and their muscles remind us of Rambo. Our frames are amusingly skinny to them - we are wimps, even the strongest of us - and because of that they often mistake us for Afghans."

Read the rest at Serendipitous Altruism

His, the French Infantryman's comment to the Blogger......"thanks for having translate my article. thanks to my partnership U.S unit for all. American people must be proud to get this kind of boys."

I guess this one guy deserves an "I'm sorry" for the Freedom Fries comments....oh well.

And a real H/T to Denny for posting the link first.

And then the thought for the day.....those silly people that think they're something that they aren' this fellow...

If somebody thinks they're a hedgehog, presumably you just give 'em a mirror and a few pictures of hedgehogs and tell them to sort it out for themselves.

Have a good day.

That's a great bit of honesty by the Frenchman!

Unrelated, to both of you-- just heard on the radio that there's some nasty rain going on, hope you two (and BwD folks) are alright!
