I am a member of the Melanoma Army!

This thought occurred to me tonight, I am a warrior in the Melanoma Army. We fight this dark scourge, usually to the death, and we pick up the weapons and tactics taught to isn't our fellow warriors who have fallen. We are not a volunteer army, all of us would prefer that we had never joined. It seems that that too is changing because we have tried to get the word out on how to avoid becoming a member of this fighting force and yet we see more and more young people volunteering (especially young girls). Fortunately they are developing many new weapons for us to test in battle. Some have been affective and some haven't. I spent twenty years working in Air Force Intelligence and I have to say that this is the most ruthless enemy I have ever come up against. I salute the warriors who have gone before me and thank God for their contributions. I pray for all my fellow warriors who are still battling the foe. I pray for all the families and friends who support us and apologize for the pain we sometimes bring to them.
