Maj. John Tammes explains why he serves.

I don’t care whether you are a bigot that thinks those “rag heads” or Muslims can’t ever stop killing each other, or a sneering political opportunist who cynically chants “no blood for oil” or “This is Bush’s War, dreamed up on a ranch in Texas.” You are, in effect, saying “Never again? Who cares – ‘again’ isn’t my problem.”

Maj. Tammes and many like him will try to prevent it from happening again, or at least try to limit the damage.

I think that’s the best we can do.
