Today is Veteran’s Day and also the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, 11/11/1918, the end of World War I. As a US Army veteran, and the offspring of a US Marine, born on a Marine base even, I honor all Veterans on this day – and every day. Thank you to those who served, and those who supported them and especially to those who gave all and their Gold Star families.
Me, at White Sands Missile Range in White Sands New Mexico circa August 1984. I was 22 yrs old and full of hell. I really liked the Army, and had it not been an issue that I was so out and proud I may have chosen to make a career out of it.
