Bazookas are old technology but World War 2 vets will tell you a thing or two about their effectiveness in the war they fought in.

This plastic army man, with his bazooka pointed at me,his helmet securely fastened, his feet planted and secured by a heavy application of scotch tape, looks at me with a stern no nonsense attitude.

Mounted atop the snack bar register, he is protecting the money, and, throws me back to grade school days when we kids actually played with these Army men, taped firecrackers to them and stood back as they were blown up with the striking of a match.

These days, Army men still wear uniforms and helmets, but they have put their bazookas in museums. Army men, these days, are likely to be killing people with their computers, sitting in a room thousands of miles from the battlefield. 

This cash register is protected, and, at night, when employees have gone home, this army man goes to the refrigerator and helps himself to a beer.

Fighting makes one thirsty and there doesn’t seem any end to war.
