Today is a special day for me because I served 8 years in the Air Force back in the 80s and 90s. I dug up this picture, taken during my E-4 pinning ceremony and re-enlistment 20 years ago. I know people say it all the time, but it really does feel like yesterday.
Serving my country was the most honorable thing I’ve done in my life, and I’ve spent most of today thinking about all the wonderful people I served with during those eight years. The faces are still in my memory, but I’m struggling to remember many of their names. Not a good feeling.
Anyways, hug a vet today. For those who have served during the last ten years, buy ’em a car.
