Have you guys been watching this show on PBS? "Carrier", which chronicles life aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz, has been on every night after work for the past few days.

And I am addicted.

On a six-month deployment, these guys and girls talk about what it's like spending 12 hours a day busting their butts to keep the ship and airplanes going. So much work - and without the luxury of coming home to their loved ones - or even the comfort of their own beds - at night when their day is done.

It's easy to go about our lives without remembering there are men and women all over the world working to keep us out of harm's way. And while I'm no fan of war, especially this one, I have to say these guys absolutely rock.

I believe the show will be broadcast until May 1, so you still have a couple of days to check it out. It's really worth watching.
