If we end up attacking Syrian targets and if ground troops are needed for some reason, USS SAN ANTONIO (LPD17) is apparently on station in the Eastern Med. Additionally, USS KEARSARGE (LHD3) is reportedly in the Red Sea. Both ships contain elements of the 26 MEU, which is commanded by our (that is myself and LTCOL P) Brother Rat, COL Matt St. Clair. If they go, I wish him well, because it will be rough. I think he is the right man for the job, however, and if there is fighting to be done, he will do it.
