I hope you're enjoying your time home!!!

There's really not much I could say that hasn't already been said. That was an amazing story. My dad was in the Persian Gulf and my mom constantly tells my brother and I about the time she was watching CNN and they showed footage of my dad's destroyer being shot at. I was two at the time. We all know what it's like to be waiting for our loved ones to come home and I'm truly glad to hear you're home safe. Enjoy your leave! Stay safe!

Static,

Welcome home! I hope the days go REAL nice & slow for you. I have been in contact with Chris Buchanan (President of Joss' Mutant Enemy Productions), because the fans of Firefly are attempting to get copies of the DVD's to as many of our troops as we can. Chris is helping us with the details. I have just e-mailed him a link to your post...so I can just about guarantee that everyone there will see it & or hear about it.

Enjoy your time home Static.

For all other browncoats -- something nobody's commented on is that if half of a random crowd of Iraq/Afgan war returnees were familiar with Fireflyisms, then the box set distribution efforts must be meeting with success.

Picture it. Firefly becoming a cultural/historical touchstone for a generation of our fighting forces...

Just a thought . . . wasn't there an Adam Baldwin site that the star himself often frequented? I tried to find it again with the idea that Static's moving story could be put where Mr. Baldwin could stumble upon it (or at least let other fans know how much something we all care about can be a source of comfort and brotherhood) but I can't find the darn thing.

Again, it's just a thought, and probably quite moot by this point.

That's enough lucidity for now,

The only 'Mod' is Haken, and I've never known him to moderate any of the threads on this site (to be fair, only a few have ever gotten heated enough to warrant mod-consideration). I also doubt that 'sticky' is currently implemented on this site; at least I've never seen a sticky post (although I guess he could stick a link to it in the 'features' or 'news' section)

therefore...*BUMP*.

I'm one of those damnable idealistic college students who thinks that there should never be war and that someday we'll see the end of it. So, being honest, I have to say that I'm not real sure that I'm happy about this war or any other. I wish that it had never started.

That being said, my grandfather was in WWII so he has a lot of strong opinions about our government and how it's run and so do I and we've gotten into more than a couple of yellin' matches about it.

But no matter what I think about any given war, I have never, WILL never, have anything but respect and admiration for the soldiers who put their lives on the line every day. Thank you for your sacrifice and the sacrifices of your family, Static.

Thank you.
