"Audie Murphy would be proud"
Owen West, a third-generation infantry Marine who served in OIF with First Force Recon, sent along a link to a spot-on critique of how media coverage of military action is missing the mark. It appears in the 4/07/05 edition of National Review Online. Here's an excerpt:
In Iraq, the most famous soldiers to emerge are PFC Jessica Lynch and PFC Lynndie England, a victim and criminal, respectively. Their public images are the offspring of Vietnam. Celebrity and cynicism have trumped achievement.
Read the rest here. Then, visit the Westwrite website to see what Owen and his dad, Bing West (who served in both the Vietnam and first Gulf War), have been up to. Father's Day is coming up and their books would make great gifts for a Marine dad. Or Mom.

Larger items like small boxes are considered parcels or ground shipments. These shipments are rarely over 50 kg (110 lb), with no single piece of the shipment weighing more than about 70 kg (154 lb). Parcel shipments are always boxed, sometimes in the shipper's packaging and sometimes in carrier-provided packaging. Service levels are again variable but most ground shipments will move about 800 to 1,100 kilometers (497 to 684 mi) per day. Depending on the origin of the package, it can travel from coast to coast in the United States in about four days. Parcel shipments rarely travel by air and typically move via road and rail. Parcels represent the majority of business-to-consumer (B2C) shipments.
