From a frequent emailer regarding Fallujah.

There was a statement in yesterday's Stars & Stripes which I really liked: headline was "New push in Fallujah improves Marines' morale" and the statement was made by Sgt Andy Folk, "'Today is going to be a good day,' he said as he grabbed a bottle of water and a Meal Ready to Eat for the long day ahead. 'Today we're going on the attack.'"

Sometimes doing nothing saps at morale in ways that doing something reinvigorates.
