My Buddie Eddie

by @ 1:45 pm. Filed under Troop Support

What a dope I am sometimes. I met the cutest Soldier at WR several weeks ago and he’s fast becoming one of my all-time favorite young warriors. He told me that he entered America as an “illegal”, but that it was all cool now since he had been fast-tracked to citizenship (one of the really good things Military service will do for you!). He was even given his citizenship by THE President of these United States, Mr. George W. Bush himself. How d’ya like me now?

Eddie is the one in the glasses next to Mr. President.

I downloaded this picture in July and it didn’t dawn on me until today to go back and look at it more closely. Sure enough – there’s Eddie!!!

Two weeks ago he learned that he was not going to lose his injured leg – something he’s been dreading for months and months. The surgeons took a final look and said “Nope, I think it’s going to be fine!” What a relief!!!! Edward Leal-Cardenas speaks 5, Count ’em FIVE, languages including Japanese. He’s one of the really bright young men that you just want to hug and never let go of.

Tribes. "I am not a wolf. I have never harmed a person in my life. But I am not a sheep, either. I know these forces are out there, and wishing it were not so will not only not make them go away – it will rob me of my chance to kick their ass when they show up."
