Veterans . . . short stint, longer haul or Retired (20+), and most importantly the Veterans with a Medical Retirement-Discharge . . . all deserving of a Truly Heartfelt Welcome Home and Hug of Thanks. The “why” should be obvious; their sacrifices, large & small, many (and sometimes all) going unnoticed is so not like what made America’s Greatness from the very beginnings of OUR Republic. SO next time, as usual, I will continue to reach out my money filled hand (before I drive off in my comfy Jeep) and wish him or her WELL, while offering a few words of advice too! I do so, daring not to “judge” wether they are or aren’t – they still are “in need”. But today it’s about WE Veterans, of which I am so thankful for being “in the club”. Was a hard life I was leading (to nowhere, so I “joined-up” like 2 of my 3 other brothers. I was a late Military Bloomer (31) when the NAVY was my calling. Twenty years later (52) I was ready to retire, completely . . . but NOT from LIFE ! Look at me now . . . Fly Fishing and finding camaraderie with this new family (of fly fishers). But the NAVY will ALWAYS be my Family, always. Thank You Veterans, comrades, friends . . .
ps; thanks HH for reposting yesterdays comment . . . I was beginning to feel “unwanted”. After all, you guys are part of my “Morning Coffee Browse”.
