Veteran’s Day 2017

Roaming Raven, Raven Buffalo, Rosa Pearl, Rev Cindy Lee, Navy, RV Living,  Veteran’s Day… Thank you! To those, I served with, those who I met after I was discharged, and to those who still serve active duty today.  Only a couple I was not proud to serve with because their manners were worse than anything I’ve come across before or since. Overall, I enjoyed my active duty time.

My father was a diesel mechanic, my brother an agricultural and big rig mechanic, and we all tore apart engines and put them back together again.  I joined with my sight set on being an air traffic controller.  All was good until I failed my eye test.  I had 15/15 vision and was color blind.  They wanted to know my next career choice.  Jet Mechanic, it was something I figured I could do.

I’m about four weeks into bootcamp and sitting in the chow hall I look up and there is a classmate of mine, Belinda Stroud Roberts.  That was the only time our paths crossed while in the military or thereafter until facebook.

Welcome home Airmen, Sailors, Soldiers, and Marines!
