    I am a dyed-in-the-wool, peace-marching liberal and every day I thank our brave men and women in unifrom. Being in the military is a job I could never do and I am grateful that there are those who do it with bravery, skill, and honor. Today I honor, especially, my father, a 3-tour VietNam vet in special forces; my ex-husband, a marine who helped evacuate Phnom Pen; and my dear friend who is even now diffusing bombs in Afghanistan. God Bless You, and God Bless all our men and women in service to their country.
