I don't want recognition on Veteran's Day or any other day that honors veteran's of our armed forces. Mine was a non combat position in support of combat aircraft. No war stories. No Purple Heart. No Post Combat Distress Disorder. Just honorable service.
Any recogition should go to veteran's who saw combat and lived to tell about it. The rest of us quietly did what we were told, did our time and got out. It was a job. Each of us did it. My heart breaks for the others who were not so lucky and still suffer from the time they spent in the armed forces. Those should be celebrated and thanked. Those should always be honored.
Thank you to those who fought and lived to tell about it.
