"What the latest IPCC report casts into relief is that the US military, businesses, government, and individuals can no longer credibly claim that they support our nation’s military while simultaneously dithering on climate action. Anything short of revolutionary decarbonization would be a global tragedy and a national betrayal of every member of the American military."
We will have both books available at our Common Ground Country Fair table in the Social & Political Action Area. They are personally autographed by Erik Edstrom!
From Un-American. A Soldier's Reckoning of our Longest War: P. 185
"..protective measures(to the compound) included razor wire, incremental improvements to the front gate, and a few speed bumps on the paved road that touched the wall of our compound...
One day, when my sister platoon was manning the outpost, an Afghan man inexplicably went over to the speed bump, rolled it up, and carried it off to his tractor, seemingly with the hope of keeping it for himself.
Seeing that the speed bump was being removed, a soldier from my sister platoon yelled from the guard tower, hoping the bump stealer got the message. It's unclear if the Afghan man heard or understood."
