Metro North M8

My first photo and ride on a Metro North M-8.

Very much like the M-7's, but runs on overhead power. The ride seemed a little smoother,  and the A/C a bit more powerful then the M-7's, but I didn't notice a huge difference between the two. Still an awesome railcar, very well appointed. New Haven line commuters must be psyched!

"We Support Our Troops"

"We Support Our Troops"

I see this slogan on a ton of different emergency vehicles.

But is it just a slogan? Or do the people actually support the troops? I'm talking about community supply drives, helping soldiers families while they are away, keeping local war monuents well-kept and relative, preferential hiring of vetrans or supporting vetrans causes, adopt a brigade, the list goes on and on with what you can do to truly "Support Our Troops".

I just feel that it's just a bumper sticker like saying, for some, that may reflect just an opinion, and it shouldn't be. Yes, it's a great reminder, but actions speak louder then words.
