Veteran’s Day Is Today

veterans-day-2015Since yesterday’s collection of various veterans was so popular, I’m going to post another bunch of pictures of people with whom I’ve served over the years and some notable friends and others I admire who served honorably.  Some of these are reruns and others may not be.  I’m feeling less lazy today, so I may caption these.

To all of you pictured below, to those colleagues not pictured below and to all who have served honorably, thank you!

    • I think we did, too. For a school gathering of officers, there’s never been a stronger sense of camaraderie than there was in our class. It stands as the most positive academic and social experience of my military career. Somewhere I still have the paper copies of our graduation party invitation.
