Off to War

A very good friend of mine is about to leave for Iraq.
People are giving him sox and sleeping aids. I have him a 3.5 X 5.5 Squared Notebook. I said, each day, writer a paragraph. It will help you deal with the day and sleep better. I did this in Vietnam with a notebook given to me by my father. He said he kept one as well when he sailed the North Atlantic in WWII.

He had no idea where his note book was. Mine is sitting on my book shelf, wire bound and turning dark yellow.

I have not opened it once since returning to Treasure Island. But I know it helped me make it through the day.
If you have someone going over, think about giving a M.
