Peter makes some excellent points. We hope this blog leads to frank and professional discussions about the issues that face the Corps. As a point I note the photo he posted of Pete Ellis.
When the Corps asked Col Avery Chenoweth to turn the iconic photo into an oil painting, they gave him an order to paint out the cigarette. I believe that Col Chenoweth gave them a not so cheery "Aye, aye" and reluctantly complied.
Let's leave the PC at the digital door.
