Item description for It Don't Mean Nothing by C. Stoddard Jack...
Sergeants Jimmy Cook and Richard Lane were two of the best damn Rangers in Alpha Company. Their men respected them, their First Sergeant put up with them, and the old man, well they tried their best to stay out of Captain Bank's way. As far as the two young Rangers from Texas were concerned this war was a cakewalk! That is until the new Lieutenant arrived. "What do you mean take cover?" Sergeant Cook yelled. "You know better than that Richard! Just what the hell are you doing listening to some damn new butter-bar Second Lieutenant with only three days in country anyways?" "Watch out what you say, Jimmy. Shit man, he's walking this way. He might hear you for Christ sake!" Sergeant Lane added. "Do you really think I give a shit!" replied the angry Sergeant as he tried to push his way around Sergeant Richard Lane, who was no small man by any means. "Let me go Richard! I almost lost my whole damn squad because of him!" "Now damn it, you settle down, Jimmy. What do you think your dad would say if they saw you acting all crazy like this?" At first, Sergeant Cook stood there stunned by Richard's strange remark and then he replied, "Hell, he'd probably tell me to just take care of my men and not listen to some dumb newbee Lieutenant!" "Yeah, I bet he would too!" Sergeant Lane added with a chuckle. "I can see them now," Sergeant Cook replied with a laugh. "Our two gray haired old pot bellied dads sitting around the pool with a cold beer in each hand telling their war stories from Vietnam and yelling out one of their stupid old sayings like, 'it don't mean nothing man, it don't mean nothing!'"

Introduction Jul 18, 2005
I received my inspiration for It Don't Mean Nothing from two different generations of soldiers; a combination of some of my old Army buddies from Vietnam, and their sons, who today, are young soldiers fighting the war in Iraq. My story is for the most part fiction, but with the help of Captain Dobos, SPC Aaron Cook and Sergeant Chris Morrison, I've tried to make it as real as possible, which I found out isn't as simple as it seems! Things have changed since my old Army days such as a CAR-15 being called a M4 carbine and tanks no longer being 50 tons but 70! There is now not only a new language, but also a new breed of soldier. I hope you will enjoy my story as I attempt to combine these two generations of proud soldiers. Now please join me, and my young Army Rangers of Alpha Company, as they patrol the hot, dusty and ever dangerous streets of Baghdad.
