Acting on the good faith assumption that your intentions are for the
security of our country, I have altered the three photos you mentioned
by number ( I can't find any pictures I have on flickr entitled "tank"
or "camp war eagle") to comply with whatever standards of operational
security are being used to screen my pictures, taken legally and with
the knowledge of command, published online as a civilian after my
discharge, and therefore protected by the 1st Amendment as part of a
free press. I understand, though, that we all must make sacrifices of
personal liberty in order to guarantee safety.

Regards,

MR Van Reet

my crystal ball says--the seahawks are due

I wouldn't call it an apology so much as me trying to make it clear that I'm on OUR side, whatever that means, anymore.

Dude, Your new font is hard for me to read. Is anyone else having that problem, or am I just going blind?

Thanks for the tip tbone-- it works ok for me on internet explorer and mozilla running on a PC-- but if a lot of people are having problems I will try something more readable

It is kind of little-bitty.
People with glasses might have a hard time with it.
I'm fine with it, myself.
