Veterans Day is Tomorrow

veterans-day-2015Rather than post a whole bunch of useless words, I’m going to post a whole bunch of pictures of people with whom I’ve served over the years and some notable friends and others I admire who served honorably.  These are all reruns, so don’t get overly excited about new content. And they’re not all captioned because I am lazy.

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

ROTC Advanced Camp. Some of these folks probably never made it to veteran’s status, but I’ll bet most did.
