( God - this doesn't get any better)
A United States Marine was attending some college courses between
assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  One of the courses had a professor who was a vowed atheist and a
member of the ACLU.
One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to
the ceiling and flatly stated, "God, if you are real, then I want you
to knock me off this platform. I'll give you
exactly 15 minutes."
The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes
went by and the professor proclaimed, "Here I am God. I'm still
waiting." It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine
got out of his Chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him;
knocking him off the plat form. The professor was out cold.

  The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently. The other
students were shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence.

The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the
Marine and asked, "What the hell is the matter with you? Why did you
do that?" The Marine calmly replied, "God was too busy today
protecting America 's soldiers who are protecting your right to say
stupid stuff and act like a ass. So, He sent me."

back 2 iraq

he left this mornin'    i had to wake at some ungodly hour of 3:30a.m. only to sit and wait on his but to get home from being out all night    his flight was originally due to leave @ 6:05a.m. but got delayed an hour   the above pics were taken this morn at 4:30a.m.   she's a new girlfriend   but i'll wait and see how long this lasts   he's headed back 2 iraq where his now ex girlfriend is (they broke up while he was here at home)   so anyways, he has too many girlfriends for me to keep up with   not that he has that many and i don't think he considers them all his "girlfriend"   but it seems to me anyways he can't be without a girlfriend for too long   doesn't matter   as long as he's happy   he'll figure out when to "settle" down    i told him to be single for awhile   sometimes he gets anxious to get married and have kids   he's only 21 and there's plenty of time for tying the knot later    anyways, he took off with some of my music again   at least 3 cds and of course they were my favorites   i think he thinks that what is mine, it is his as well    i'll kick his ass later, but right now he's headed back to Iraq and i can forgive him   not going to get too upset about the cds and whatever else he might have taken off with   he's a good kid and has grown up a lot since being in the army   even his buddy Gerard noticed    so now i just keep him in my prayers until he gets back to Hawaii in October    he shared a few things with me that's he's done in Iraq    he's ok with it all, so i'm ok with it    for now i'll miss him, but it sure is nice to have my place to myself again....and he wants to come home and live with me for awhile    should be interesting......
