My only excuse for not posting an article honoring our Veterans is that my mind was occupied yesterday, on that eleventh day of the eleventh month, with other serious matters.
Those courageous men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation, especially in time of war, should be remembered and honored. Whether or not we believe a war is right, these folks served and put their life on the line for their nation.
Sanford Watzman, my father, was such a man. He served in the Pacific during World War II, enlisting in the Army on his 21st birthday, one day after Pearl Harbor was attacked. In the honor and memory of all Veterans, I’ve posted some links to my father’s story below.
