From Barry T. (Retired Toolmaker, age 67)

A salute to all our troops,

Here’s one American who is behind you all the way.

This is a quote from Jeff Cooper of Gunsite fame, that I think may be relevant to those of you who served or are currently serving in hot zones.

“Having been mildly annoyed by the commonplace salutation, “Have a nice day!” for some years now, we were delighted recently when, after filling our tank and taking our money, our local friendly fuel dealer waved at us and said, “Shoot straight!” We intend to adopt that expression, and we hope that our friends will too.”

This ‘Shoot Straight’ may also replace the admonition to ‘Be Careful’.

I offer this in memory of my dad Carl, who had been there and done that in WW II.

With all the respect you deserve,

God bless our troops!
