Happy, Meaniningful, Thankful Veteran’s Day

I wanted to take a moment to wish all the men and women in uniform, past and present, and their families who stand by them and suffer no less, a heartfelt thank you. My time in uniform has come to a close, but I appreciate even more those who continue to keep my family, my home, and my beautiful country safe and secure.

Today for Veteran’s Day, I’m going to kick back with a fresh cup of coffee and watch my all time favorite movie, “Stand By For Action”, 1942 with Robert Taylor, Brian Donlevy, Charles Laughton, and Walter Brennan. I served on the USS Arleigh Burke for 4 years, so watching a movie about a destroyer in action with a crew of truly the greatest generation is an absolute pleasure. I’ve worn my copy of this DVD thin. Later, I’ll be joined by fellow vet Dave Ditullio for some cartoon work, followed by a libation tipped in honor of those still standing watch over us.
