Lost boy found

101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Forward Operating Base Deh Dadi II, Afghanistan – First Lt. Gabriel Chol Deng said he does not envy his fellow officers when they speak fondly of their childhood memories, but he does find himself having to walk away from those particular conversations.

Instead of enjoying a carefree youth and adolescence, Deng spent several years as an orphan separated from his family and as a guerilla fighter in his native Sudan. He was one of the infamous, “Lost Boys of Sudan,” one of thousands of displaced boys whose youth was marred by violence, brutality and survival.

And while Deng admits it’s sometimes hard to remember those hardships of his past, he said he chooses not to dwell on them.

First Lt. Gabriel Chol Deng endured many hardships as on the "Lost Boys of Sudan.” Today, he is a soldier assigned to the 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade. (Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Peter Mayes)

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of July 31st

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

For some time, financial market participants have been complacent about the federal debt ceiling being raised. After all, we’ve been here before and when push comes to shove, lawmakers will raise the debt ceiling because they have to raise the debt ceiling. The consequences of not doing so would be catastrophic for the economy and the financial markets. However, as we near the August 2 deadline, both parties remain far apart, raising the possibility that the ceiling might not be raised in time. Already, investors have pulled out of money market funds (opting instead for FDIC-backed bank deposits). Banks have begun to raise capital and tighten credit on consumer and business borrowers – none of this is good for economic growth.

The economic data remained generally disappointing. The advance estimate of Q211 GDP growth came in at a 1.3% annual rate (vs. a median forecast of +1.8%), with consumer spending at a 0.1% pace (held back by higher gasoline prices and a drop in motor vehicle sales). More troublesome, benchmark revisions delivered downward adjustments to GDP figures for Q410 and Q111. «Read the rest of this article»
