War Poet.ca - A CFAP Project by Suzanne Steele

 REMF

from the mail bag today,

I wanted to thank you for your work and your words. I found your site after a mention in the Maple Leaf while I was over in KAF, and I was struck by how personal your work seemed to me.

Although I was a REMF, I did have a few opportunities to venture outside the wire and the little of what I saw and heard made me consider that we did a hell of a job in helping the ordinary locals feel a little safer and that we cared very deeply about what we did and still need to do.

and f.y.i. REMF = Rear Echelon Mother Fucker, i.e. someone who works in Head Quarters in KAF, desk job

a nice blend of humour and self-deprecation. God they’re funny.
