Happy Veteran’s Day to all my sisters and brothers in arms!

Happy Veteran’s Day to all my brothers and sisters in arms!  We had a wonderful ceremony at the high school where I teach.  The staff and students put on an amazing and respectful assembly.  I felt so honored to be a part of it.  So many students that day came up to me in classrooms and in the hall to shake my hand and thank me for my service.  I also reminded them to not forget those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

As I enjoy this day off from school and work, I went golfing and was welcomed by some late Autumn sunshine.  It was very peaceful and it gave me time to reflect on my time I spent in the Air Force.  I got to meet and work with many great people, travel all over Europe, and has incredible experiences that made me a better person and which I will never forget.  I am so glad I made the choice to join those many years ago!
