Happier Topic...MUCH Happier

Here is our new daughter, Mariko Anne. She's a mellow little tyke, eats an enormous amount, and has the brightest eyes (though they're a bit sleepy here). Two weeks old tomorrow. She has enormous hands just like her older brother.

Anyhow, this gives me some faith that there are still professionals in the military who retain some sense of what we thought we were as a nation, and how those ideals might still play a role in what we face now.
