Yup, the War's Still On...
Thanks to Quaker House for this new batch of pictures from the Camp Lejeune Marine base in North Carolina. For those of you who missed the first set, these banners are hung up by wives of soldiers returning to Camp Lejeune from Iraq. They not only remind me that there is a war happening that has real effects on the lives of real men and women, but that sex culture in the military is a truly fascinating animal.
These banners get hung up--with the soldiers' names and, often, their rank on them--so that the planes coming in on the runway can see them. I absolutely love that this baldfaced expression of lust is totally acceptable in the Marines. I guess they understand that when your Snugglypoo has been in Iraq for a third tour, you're entitled to tell the whole world how much you want to fuck him.
The war is still on.
