Coming up on Tuesday November 7th marks the 58th anniversary of the day that I became a Soldier in the U.S. Army.  It was this single event that set me on a path of experiences that to this day has determined who I am as an individual and as a man.  I am very appreciative for this opportunity that so many in today's world choose not to experience.  I am a veteran and no one can ever take that away from me.  I don't want any special recognition of my service.  It is I that should thank the American People for what it has brought to my life.  So here it is... "Thank You for allowing me to proudly serve" 

My military life took me from Steam Corners, Ohio to Ft. Hayes, ohio, to Ft, Jackson, SC, Ft Gordon Ga, Ft Dix NJ, Ft. Rucker, AL , Ft Harrison Indiana. The White House Washington DC.  I assure you there were lots of memorable experiences during that time.

Bud, I know how you feel.  52 years ago this month, I left Vietnam to return home to the good 'ol USA.

Peace, Brother.

Old Fishermen never die, their rods just go limp.
