Interesting indeed. I bet the Grogs could wipe the floor against all those Army Pukes. Without their dongles, they can't do nothing.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

And yes, Emeraldlis, we are completely addicted to abbreviations and acronyms.  Within two moths of starting work at CGSC, my wife complained I no longer spoke English.   :)
