Today a heartfelt thank you to all, past and present, who have served and fought to protect us and country.
If I had been born in the U.S., just 120 miles south of where I actually was born, I would have come of age, received a draft card, and almost certainly shipped off to Vietnam, which wouldn’t have been good to say the least. It gives me chills thinking about it. So to those who did go and managed to survive and come back, not always in one piece, I say a special thanks for enduring such a horrific experience.
