    In case I never got around to it, thank you for your service to our country.

    I still maintain you were 15 when you enlisted ;-)  

    I never asked, were you the only one from your family to go?

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

      I have 3 brothers and a step brother, 3 of who were eligible for the draft and all of them dodged it. I have no problem with that at all, I believe if there  must be war let it be done by the people who want to do it.
      My dad was a ex WWII grunt and he told us all not to do it. I was the one who wouldn't listen.

      But I saw things only a rare few thousands of Americans  saw--I walked down the HO Chi Minh Trail, trying to look over both shoulders at once

      Happy just to be alive
