    Anti-War Protesters (from Silke, guest blogger)
    Hi everyone,

    I want to thank Greta for this opportunity and I'm honored to be a guest Hooah Wife. Her description of me was "right on" except for the genius part. In fact I'm going to have to scrounge up some brain cells for this intellectual exercise. The most writing I've done lately is excused absence notes to my sons' teachers on days they were sick.

    Anti-War Protestors: No Solutions, Just Complaints
    My husband is in the Army and serving in Iraq (his second deployment in two years). Normally the anti-war protestors don't bother me that much but two weeks ago they hit a little closer to home. We live in the D.C. area and were attending the National Book Festival on the Mall on the same Saturday that many anti-war protestors demonstrated in front of the White House. My sons have these chains that look like "dog tags" and say "Proud to be a military kid." The boys were going to wear them that day but I had to tell them not to. I didn't tell them why, but I was afraid the protestors would harass us.

    I have mixed feelings about the anti-war protests. I don't think it's necessarily a betrayal of our troops to protest - after all these people are exercising one of our fundamental rights. I also think it's important to hold the administrations feet to the fire and make sure our troops are over there for the right reasons and can come home as soon as possible. The problem is these protestors don't offer any solutions. The troops can't just pull out immediately. That is simplistic and nai've. And despite their assurances that they support our troops, the truth is that to some extent these anti-war protests do affect moral - both for the troops and their families.

    I am proud of my husband's service and the work he is doing in Iraq. Of course I want him home as soon as possible but I also know that he has a job to do and that anything less than 100% of my support would just be a distraction. Of all the signs I saw that day on the Mall, none of them offered any solutions just complaints.
