Don't get me wrong, I am very proud to be a veteran also, and I salute you for your service, but after spending 36 of my 48 months in the Army collecting seperation pay I have to roll my eyes every time I hear that phrase. Sending you to deploy 3 months after giving birth is excessive. You could have joined your unit mid-deployment or hell, even rear D needs supply.
Oh, and word up to a fellow DAC.
I also agree with you somewhat about the athem. It makes me proud everytime I hear it. The words are fine. I just have to say as a person who once tried to sing it, it is a royal bitch to sing. That said, it drives me insane every time I hear some pop 'icon' or R&B singer ruin it. The song has notes. They are nice notes. Sure, they are hard to sing, but that does not mean you need to add 50,000 embellishments to A) cover your poor vocal technique or B) make it about you not about those who actually deserve it.
