    “I wonder if this post is some sort of test,” I said to myself as I linked Kate’s post first.

  2. There’s a joke involving a “jarhead” in here somewhere…

  3. I’d say that all signs point toward my husband celebrating alone. 😉

  4. James, please separate the two issues. I’d like to appreciate both, just not at the same time — although some Navy officers are pretty hot in their uniforms …

  5. Mark Hasty says:

    I’m pretty sure Ted Rall is planning a cartoon about this “coincidence.”

  6. Boyd says:

    It seems to me that active duty military members (pun purely coincidental), retirees and veterans can celebrate both at the same time.
