End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

    The war at 5: Pride, regret, anger in North County on fifth anniversary of Iraq invasion
    Five years of yellow ribbons. Five years of candlelight vigils. Five years of Blue and Gold Stars, welcomes home and tearful goodbyes.

    Some thought it would be a cakewalk. Some thought it would spark a third World War. Few could have predicted with confidence that at today's fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, the outcome would still be so uncertain, the next move so debated and the number of dead so great.

    Nearly 4,000 Americans, including 330 from Camp Pendleton and 10 from Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, have died since troops stormed over Iraq's border with Kuwait in March 2003.

    As weeks turned into months and months into years, the casualty reports became a numbing background noise for many.
