I say good for him. He is providing a necessary service to our soldiers and their families, especially in these trying times.

Sounds like things are tight. About a year ago a doctor friend of ours from Ohio knew of a 68 year old Psychologist who was called up. Apparently had not signed the proper forms removing him from the "available" list. Do we have a new Senior corp?
