Grandma in Army Boots: It's Not A Joke!

The media loved the Raging Grannies, whose New York chapter was recently acquitted of trespassing when they tried to enlist in Times Square. [They didn't block the entrance, but left a passage. Good political theater depends on cooperation.]

Well, here's Petty Officer First Class Janet Grass, U.S. Navy Reserve, age 52 and a grandmother, who is deploying to Iraq to do security. It appears that she'll reach retirement eligibility in the middle of her deployment, so she'll be "stop-lossed" until it concludes. We know nothing about her politics, but Operation Yellow Elephant salutes PO1 Grass's service to our country.

OK, you supposedly heterosexual male College and Young Republicans, is there nothing that can convince you of your national leadership responsibility to set a good example for the rest of country?

I blogged about this very subject this evening-even linked to here for any Shrubberals that might be looking for information on how to sign up and keep the grandmas at home. I also speculated that none would be rushing to sign on the dotted line. The 103rd Chariborne Division only fights with keyboards.

What the repuke kids do is follow their leader, and that is sad. I served in 2 branches of the military, marines, and the army,
during vietnam, and got a total of 13 years, which makes me say I am a proud marine retired, and army retired. Today, I would not join the military for they way they screw the military and only worry about their rich buddies, but their time is coming. And as for granny,kick ass and take pics.
