  4. Ravi’s is a “joy unspeakable and full of glory”
  5. I miss my buddies in the service. For 18 years I witnessed that some of the most unsung heroes were the non-operations (support) people who make achieving all mission objectives possible. With their operations band of brothers and sisters, it was truly a team effort. When things kicked off in Afghanistan, I went to my nephew’s Army basic training graduation ceremony at Ft. Benning, Georgia. As the “pass in review” of the proud graduates took place, I couldn’t hold back tears.

Either my new vitamins have a kicked in, or it really has been that long. My brother says he’s reached mullet threshold. I don’t think I want a photo.
