The lovely and talented Cannonette was recruited into my gun detachment 28 years ago. She is the only member of the detachment I had to recruit. The rest were bred for the position. Good times, bad times, sickness, health, unaccompanied tours, she has stuck through it all.
I read Long Iraq Tours Can Make Home a Trying Front, and I gave thanks to God that Cannonette is Semper Fidelis.
