* All Hallows Eve Approaches! *
Note from Army Officer leaving the service:
Q: Why did you decide to leave the service early?
A: When I entered the service, it was illegal to be a homosexual.
During my time of service, it became neutral.
I'm leaving before it becomes mandatory!!
Folks this was not, and is not a joke. This question was put to a great number of officers, who are leaving the services early, due to this abominable situation!
Now there are a great deal of people out there who say that homosexuality is normal!! Well, if that were true, then the population of this planet would be 1!!

Huntin' Season Approaches:
For this clan, hunting season not only means hunting, it's special in alot of other ways. The closeness, no tv's and radios, the talks in the evenings, the talks on the trail, enjoying each others company and the beauty of the outdoors!
Jon and Bobby are gettin' camo practice for the season. Bob(5) is a real vet, as he has hunted with us for his third year. Last year Jonathan got a really good cow elk, the morning of the second day of the season! The year before, Stan got a nice 4/5 point bull elk! The most important thing was, we all enjoyed the company of each other and had a really great time walkin' in the mountains. This year we'll take some pics of the thrills of the huntin' camp!

John Schieman, 37, thought the best time to steal a car would be when its owner was getting
out. As his would-be-victim, Robin Van Bortle, 32, was attaching The Club, to her steering

the head with the antitheft device. The budding criminal was charged with robbery, assault, and

Survival Tip:PURIFICATION TECHNIQUES:
There are 3 tried and tested ways to make sure your wilderness water is safely disinfected: Boiling, Halogenation, and Filtration. You should pick the one that best suits your needs and is appropriate to your activity.
This Week: HALOGENATION:
As for chemicals that kill water-borne pathogens, both chlorine and the iodine in Potable Aqua have been proven relatively effective, given enough of the chemical and enough time. Halogenation is effected by water temperature(the warmer, the better), the pH of the water and the turbidity of the water. For best results, strain out particles by pouring through a clean T-shirt or bandana before adding Potable Aqua. Halogens are generally more convenient and faster than boiling the water(when you consider lighting the stove or building the fire), but they cost a bit more and can't be guaranteed to work as well as other means of water disinfection.
Chlorine and iodine for instance, have not been proven fatal to Cryptosporidium. Halogens also tend to leave the water tasting crummy, a phenomenon reversible by adding flavoring(such as energy drink powders), or, if using iodine, an iodine -taste-removing product, such as Potable Aqua with P.A.Plus, after the disinfection process has been completed. If you add anything to the water prior to complete disinfection, the added substances may disrupt the disinfection process. A simple rule is: Follow the directions on the label!

Many Americans have a very definite idea about how the Internal Revenue Service
behaves. And in many respects, they are correct. Testimony before the Senate
Committee in October of 1997 revealed, for the first time for many Americans, just
how the IRS tries to intimidate and bully you.

MIA Having posted a little tickler in last week's Digest
about Al Gore's "141 days in Vietnam," The Federalist Editorial Board
was inundated with inquiries from Vietnam vets. Most went
something like this: "Gore claimed in his convention speech: 'I enlisted
in the Army because I knew if I didn't go, someone else in the small
town of Carthage, Tennessee would have to go in my place.'
Since he wasn't KIA [Killed in Action] or wounded, how was it that his
Army tour was far shorter than all the rest of us?" Our astute veteran readers took the bait!
Gore's campaign launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign this week to
tell his "life story." The ads will include references to his "service" in
Vietnam --however brief. Gore spent less than five months of a typical
twelve-month tour in Vietnam. He spent every minute of his "tour" as a
"rear-echelon...." (call any combat veteran and they can complete that
phrase for you).
He was classified as a military journalist after telling recruiters he was a "newspaper trainee" (read "copy boy") for
the New York Times while a student at Harvard. He was assigned as a
noncombatant "information specialist" to the Army's 20th Engineers
Brigade headquarters at Bien Hoa military base near Saigon. Gore's
immediate supervisor in Vietnam has confirmed that his posting there
came with explicit instructions to baby-sit him and make sure he was
never in any danger.
That fact notwithstanding, Gore has claimed to the Washington Post that
he was "shot at" and "spent most of my time in the field." He later told the Baltimore Sun that "[I] pulled my
turn on the perimeter at night and walked through the elephant grass and
I was fired upon." He has since backed off these exaggerated claims. On
May 22, 1971, not five months into his "tour of duty," Gore was given special dispensation and a one-way ticket home to attend
divinity school in Nashville. He dropped out of Vanderbilt shortly thereafter.
As for the seven months cut from Gore's tour of duty in Vietnam, we
suppose "someone else in the small town of Carthage, Tennessee" had
to finish his tour "in his place".

FREE Guidebook: "Mommy I Don't Feel Good"
The flu shot is safe to get while you're pregnant, according to the
Centers for Disease Control, which recommends it for women in their
first trimester who will be more than 14 weeks pregnant during the
peak influenza months. Be aware, however, that the flu shot will
protect you only against the more serious strains that tend to land
people in the hospital. The vaccine does not work for the "colds" that
we all get every winter, unfortunately.
Some people feel achy and fatigued when they get the shot, as if they
are getting a mild cold. This is because the vaccine is stimulating
your immune system so that it will recognize these nasty flu types if
you come in contact with them.
NOTE: Always Check with and follow the advice of your Physician!
Should I let my child fall asleep after he's had a serious fall?:
Many parents believe they need to keep their children awake after a
serious fall to prevent a coma. This is an old wives' tale with no
basis in reality. In fact, putting your baby down for a restorative
nap after an emotional trauma like a scary fall can be comforting. You
might consider taking a short one yourself. Of course, it's still
important to check on your child every two hours or so. Look for any
changes in his color or breathing, and wake him if he appears to be in
distress. If he's alert when you wake him up, then it's unlikely he
has suffered a concussion or any other serious injury. If he seems
overly groggy or lethargic, or if you're worried for any reason, trust
your thinking and call your pediatrician for advice. She may want to
give him a quick checkup or suggest waking him every couple of hours
for the first night after his fall, just to be certain he's rousable.
If at any point you're unable to wake your child, take him to the
NOTE! Always check with and follow the advice of your physician!!
