As Paul Harvey Used To Say...
As we are wont to do here, we write stories. Have done, and will do again.
One such was over five years ago.
But, as signs at log-on should make evident, the Internet Is Forever.
At least it is, if you leave it alone.
And we read our comments. Partly to weed out bad manners, bile, or the occasional Indonesian Viagra spam, but mainly because of mutual interest in other people's thoughts and ideas.
So this afternoon, we got to know, in that rich phrase, "the rest of the story".
Nota bene, not the fascinating part of it we received out of the blue four months after penning the original post. But rather, the part we received this afternoon, another five years after that.
I humbly suggest reading the whole thing linked above, but more specifically the comments.
I may be wrong, but I suspect it may be interesting to some readers here, particularly those with prior or current military service.
It's a big world, but the 'net shrinks it down to about a phone booth, in ways you'd never imagine.
