At my six week checkup I was given a prescription for a low dose of Levitra at the Dallas VA. My little acorn just played dead until today which is 5 months ago or so . I won't be doing any **** movies anytime soon but it sure makes me feel better. I guess my message is to never give up on your little soldier from standing at attention.

Attention is the first movement learned in basic training. Marching takes a little more effort. Knowing the little soldier is capable of learning is very positive.

From little acorns mighty oaks grow.
May all your wood be the nonburnable kind.

Congratulations,
