This past Monday I had lunch with Brad and his wife, Joan. After lunch, as Brad and I went out to load some oak firewood into my truck, I noticed this motivational poster lying on his workbench.

Picking it up and admiring it, Brad told me that he’d seen this picture when he’d been in Iraq and, that obviously, someone had added the ‘sentiment’ and made a poster out of it.

The picture is of an Army sniper and his M-14, in Falluja during the big fight there. The ‘smiley face’ got my attention, but I really liked the prose.

Remember, “Three muscles for proper trigger squeeze”, but always keep smiling!
