Happy Veterans Day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, men and women of our armed services. We owe you….well, absolutely everything. Today has me harkening back to our day aboard an aircraft carrier, the USS Midway. Especially the veteran I met who served during the Fall of Saigon and shared some incredibly bittersweet memories with incredible pride in his voice. Thank you for the indelible memory, sir.
If you’re in the area, this is a great tour. Allow at least 3 hours, and don’t miss this view, which is the shared wish of every single American for every single serviceperson:
Docked nearby is the USS Carl Vinson, site of the college basketball game later today (and the carrier that held Osama bin Laden’s body earlier this year). More on that in this great article.
