50 YEARS AGO TODAY...

...I boarded a Flying Tigers Charter Jet in Cam Rahn Bay, South Vietnam to return home after 14 months and 3 days in Vietnam (I extended my tour 2 months to get an early out).

Yesterday was Veterans Day but today is a little more special for me.

May God bless those (and their families) less fortunate than me who were either killed or badly wounded.

    Thank you for your service @AndersonDawg The last three days must have felt like three weeks.

    As a young Boy, I remember seeing the excitement of family friend Colonel Tom Moe returning home on National TV after having been a POW for over five years. He also served in Desert Shield.

    Sincerest thanks for your service. We have the freedom to be passionate about a game because men like you sacrificed so much (some everything) to protect us from tyranny.

    Thanks for your service AndersonDawg. During the half time tribute at this past missouri game, I was mentioning to my wife - 'I hope these guys (and gals) that have served are as proud of themselves as we are of them.' Thanks, and be proud.
