“Everything you do leaves traces” – The Bat by Jo Nesbo
I am a veteran.
I did in fact serve in the US Army from 1965 to 1969. Four years that seemed like a lifetime back then. Like all GI’s, I did not like the Army at all. Funny how time will alter one’s perspective.
Every veteran’s day I reminisce about those years and I think about how fortunate I was to serve this great country. It was an honor and a privilege.
This morning my daughter called to thank me for my service to the country. That wonderful gesture touched something deep in my soul. And how lucky am I to have a daughter that thoughtful. Wow.
