A month or so ago a local radio station interviewed a soldier stationed in Iraq from the local area who spoke of his family:
I keep them in my heart, but I keep them out of my mind, because I miss the hell out of them.
It is a very poignant statement. At least it was the first thirty times I heard. They turned it into a commerical which I usually hear at least once I day. I just hope that either his family doesn’t listen or they are sending them a check each time they put him on the radio.
