My wife Annalisa and I both dressed up for Church on Sunday. I dressed so my sons could say their Dad is in the Army. My wife put on Peace signs.
Many people said "Thanks for your service" to me. I got a free latte at my local Starbucks on Columbia Ave. I wore the uniform to work today and two of my colleagues took me out for lunch.
So much better to be a soldier now than during Viet Nam.
