For Veterans Day.
These are my late father’s Army dog tags. He was drafted after High School, serving stateside during the Korean Conflict. He always made that point clear. He often added, his toughest “job” in the military was something he and his buddies did while on maneuvers in Texas along the Mexican border: they snuck into Mexico at night to buy cheap tequila. Not to drink mind you, but as an accelerant to start their camp fires. If I recall correctly, the tequila cost a nickel a gallon.
Thank you to all of my friends who served in the military, whether you had it as tough as my dad or much tougher.
What is this, some kind of series?
Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
