Re: Veterans Day...
Am very proud of my service during a time when it was difficult to be in the military. I enlisted in June 67 right after HS and served until April 70. 14 months Germany with 3/12th Cav, part of 3rd Armd. Div. then 12 months Viet Nam 84th Engr. Bn. Apr 69 to Apr 70. My Dad was a WWII vet, my older brother enlisted in 65 and I followed in 67. My Father In Law and both of wife's Uncles are WWII vets, all gone now. Have been to "The Wall" in Washington DC, have several buddies listed on it from HS and service time. Made it three times there while in DC, last trip was late at night. The darkness brings it back close and a lot of the memories I wish I could forget. Made it to Arlington and observed Changing of The Guard. Very humbling experience seeing all those crosses.
I thank all my fellow vets who went before me, during my service time and after for having my back and the nations back. I remember !
