I saw on the news today that General David Petraeus is handing over the command of his troops to another to take a well deserved promotion. Our country owes this gentleman a great deal for his many and untiring efforts in Iraq. He has turned things around militarily so that we can at the very least, see a bright light at the end of what was a long and dark tunnel.
My feelings echo what Sam Watkins said when he heard that Joe Johnson had been replaced as the Army of Tennessee's commander:
"Good bye, old fellow. We loved you, because you made us love ourselves"
