Hence the saying that "Military Intelligence" is a contradiction of terms.

My husband was a green beret and that was what he was in "Military Intelligence". I used to tease him, that is where you are put when they can't find anywhere else to put you.
On the other hand, so sad to be reminded during of the holidays of something so sad. Very stupid.

It's stories like that blunder that makes me glad that I've served my time in the armed forces and am too old now by one year to have to go back in.

Turns out that several hundred letter were sent out during the Christmas/Channukah holiday to familes in grief over the loss of their loved ones in the war.

What a slap in the face! Can you imagine what that must have felt like???
