    My nephew, a Marine, was waiting back at base for his best buddy to return. He usually flies on this helicopter. When he talked to his buddy they were 20 minutes away.

    Merde.

    As we USAFA grads will say and do when a comrade, classmate, or warrior is lost...

    "A toast!"

    And I just took one in his name...with a fine single-malt.

    Anyone that puts on the uniform, whether it be Army green, Marine Dress Blues, Naval White, or USAF blue's...and let me not forget our Coastie brethren in blue's and white...

    Has EARNED the right of a toast in their name!
