    Six - your Clearance - if you have one - is only 'valid' for six months after ETS. You should be looking for civilian work with that clearance well before your ETS date. Once you cross that line - you can nearly forget that you ever had one - because the companies that will re-certify a clearance are few and far between.

    #3David, in honor of your father's faithful service to a proud and grateful nation, I would like to say, "Climb to Glory!"

    By the way, that is the motto of the 10th Mountain Division. Dates back to service in WWII in the Italian campaign and their train up for war in the Colorado mountain ranges.

    Today, if you were to travel to Fort Drum, NY (home of the 10th Mountain Division) you will often see and hear Soldiers saluting their officers saying, "Climb to Glory Sir!" To which officers quickly return the salute and reply with, "To the Top!"

    John
    10th Mountain Division Combat Veteran

    Last shared insight. The WWII 10th Mountain Division veterans came back from that war and returned to their beloved Colorado ski ranges and established the current ski resorts that dot their picturesque ridge lines e.g., Aspen, Vail and so on. In fact, in honor of their contributions to Colorado's ski industry the state offers vehicle license plates with the 10th Mountain logo and the words, "Ski Troops!"

    Thank you, Randy, for an excellent read on Veterans Day. I admire and salute your friend, as well as all U.S. veterans today and every day. My late father served in the Army, 10th Mountain Division as a 1st Lt. in the special explosives unit. The skills and experience he learned in the military were instrumental in shaping his career in the private sector as president and CEO of a textile manufacturing corporation in NYC. He was always so proud of his military experience and serving out great nation. I'll always remember the Taps salute and American flag placed over his coffin at the funeral. That flag is encased today in my home next to a photo of him as a young officer.
    God Bless America and all who served -- not only today, but every day of the year.

    #1 #2 Thank you both. Sometimes my brain injury gets in the way as I shift from jeeps to Invisible Illnesses to Malingering...but as an ER doc, I was always so afraid I would "miss" something. You know, you don't get follow-up so you never really know. I tried to do my best, and I was fresh out of med school with a stack of medical books and just jumped into that ER with only my new medical license! Learned so much...wouldn't trade it for the world. And yes, there is a long, long list of Invisible Illnesses, the 2 most common being heart disease and diabetes. Killers, both. ALL about it in my book ~ 500+pages. I focus on Immunonutrition. Perhaps I'll start posting some of those chapters in brief here.....:-).

    @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD I was surrounded by military personnel growing up...so much so that I thought it was mandatory that everyone serve in the military after completing High School. Imagine my surprise...and shock...when I found out the truth! I attempted to get into the military seven times. The first time, I would have gotten in...except for the fact that I needed my blood pressure taken 3 times a day for a week to show that my blood pressure was normal. My grandmother, who had custody of me, refused to sign the paperwork for me to get tested, otherwise I'd now be a Navy Vet. One day in the early '80's, I watched while the car in front of me threw rotten fruit at a man in uniform. I was so shocked, repulsed, and ashamed, that I stopped...and told him I'd take him to his ultimate destination, no matter where it was. He thanked me, but had me stop at a truck stop about two hours away. As Americans, we have a PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AS CITIZENS to see that our vets get the treatment---and honour---they deserve. The above statistics just add to the disgrace the US has become. I'd considered moving to the UK...but I stay where I'm "stationed"...and THESE COLOURS DON'T RUN.

    Your hometown seems very well-entrenched in military history. It is so honorable for the history to live on. Agent Orange was a prolific blow to many civilian doctors, who reassured ourselves that it was a good choice to Not join the Reserves at the time. I'm so sorry for all the lives lost, and so grateful they remain honored. You are just amazing.

    @Randy Keho: The reason for the whole thing....those last few lines, "I am part of our American flag that has flown in the U.S.A I can no longer fly since the sun and wind have caused me to become tattered and worn. Please carry me as a reminder of the privilege that is yours to live in the great nation which I was privileged to fly over." ... they remind me once again that we need to keep honoring and serving Those Who Gave for their Countries. It's a bond, a clear and foggy belt that holds two souls together with the team and the comrades, the wind and the sky. Let us never forget. Thank you, Randy. A great tribute. 👍

    What a grand experience. I don't have a hometown and love reading the experiences of those who do. You know the history of the butcher shop, the Meat and Eat Raffle (what a hoot) and more. While I may not have a hometown, I do know Small Town, USA and I do love my country - the USA - and would be honored to have received a star from a previously flying flag. What a great exchange for a single $1. Oh, and I hope you win the raffle!

    @Randy Keho bingo (and the pun really was unintended)! That is so cool! It's funny how some of the most important moments in life seem to just happen, when you go fill up the tank, or pick stuff up from the store --probably because that's where life is happening...good 'un!

    #2 I love that the buildings "ooze mischief" from you. Is that due to childhood boys running down the halls? Because that's the vision I see, and it causes me to smile, knowing that those in the grave are smiling at this mischief, too!

    How honorable and picturesque...perhaps it is just my glasses, but I see tattered windows turned to their sides, some trying to see, and some crying to hide. The straight-backed soldiers with hats on their head reminds us of all those eyes filled with dread. But the glory outshines the story as all stand and wait for the silence to remember the ending, life's fate.

    Dad's Wild Ride: To Hellcat and Back
    Dad's Wild Ride: To Hellcat and BackI built this 1/35-scale diorama about 15 years ago in honor of my father for his service during World War II. His tank destroyer battalion was attached to U. S. Gen. George S. Patton as he raced from Normandy to Germany. Before I required bifocals,...

    I used to love helping my brothers put together models! I could never convince my Mom to get me one, not ladylike. Ugh! I would know how to build what my military father worked with, he was a ground to air missile specialist. Where he was stationed overseas we weren't allowed to go, too remote. The missiles he worked with were still classified top secret so he never talked about them. He did get to support missile programs at Vandenberg and in Montana but most of his time in the 50s and 60s was spent in southeast Asia.

    #6 @Randy Keho, my father died of Alzheimer's the same year of the car accident with my daughter. With dementia, Reminiscence could very well trigger some well-established paths in your grandfather's brain. I gently recommend you catch the look in his eye at first glance, and even if you don't see a reaction, "he" is still inside there...and his brain will respond. Don't listen to the doctors on this one. Wishing you love, and sending Grandpa a huge smack on the cheek!

    #6 I come back here every so often, just to see this scene and all the details...it belongs in a museum, I think. Yes. A museum behind glass, where no kid can sneeze on it! My favorite image it the navigator with the opened book of maps on his 'tank' desktop. Just precious...and thinking of how many young kids were also sitting in his chair....wow. I'm just filled with respect and admiration, all over again.

    #5 Yes. @Lisa 🐝 GallagherMy father , who's still kicking, but suffers from dementia while living in a nursing home, has seen all of my dioramas. He used to ask me what I was working on every time we got together. He used to build models for me when I was a youngster. I got into the hobby after I was laid off from my job
    in the 1990s. My son and I would work on models together, but the bug never hit him like it did me.
