    On this day I am recalling a conversation I had with a Corpsman. Time briefly froze, as we instinctively tighten and flexed, our eyes staring but not focusing. "Out-going," I muttered. "Roger that", the Corpsman whispered. Slowly, time started moving again, then the Corpsman added, "If it's not the out-going ... it's the in-coming. The only difference is who gets the grease ... and that's no difference at all."

    While this particular day is to honor United States Veterans, I salute all Vets of all armies. Be Safe and Godspeed.

    Respect is the least we can give to those who served.

    Thank you. We really don't do enough to help our vets, especially those physically and emotionally disabled. I came out OK and never regreted my service, but I sometimes wonder if we really care(as a nation).
