I Remember

Today is designated “Memorial Day” in the USA.

And, lest any of my compatriots from what we not-so-fondly remember as the “Viet Nam Era” think that the fears; the pain; the Brotherhood; the confusion, disillusionments, Camaraderie, uncertainties, or anguish of those days have been somehow forgotten.

Please know that… On this (as on many other) days… I remember ! “Semper Fi”

Thank you Carole. You are one of the few who would recognize me from those photos ... it's great to be able to celebrate our friendship for all of these years.

Surprise! I wasn't born old. But don't mind the progression one bit. I'm glad that I caught you by surprise... and the love is definately mutual.
