Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.

On Friday morning, two days after President Donald Trump tweeted that transgender Americans would no longer be allowed to serve their country in the military, I met up with a Navy petty officer at a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf here in Mission Valley.
As the Department of Defense scrambles to develop a policy that fits President Donald Trump’s surprise tweeted ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military, it’s worth asking: Where do transgender troops serve now around the world, and how have they impacted their home nations’ readiness?
Today, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to announce that he will reinstate a transgender ban across the military that was lifted last year under then-Secretary of Defense Ash Carter. The removal of the ban allowed thousands of troops to serve openly as transgender, but its reinstatement may now force these men and women out of their careers.
