Thanks rlmorel!

Dad ‘ll read this tonight and appreciate everyone’s concern and efforts.

He’s doing his part with the upper ‘management’ at USAFA. But it’s going to take more than a letter and his voice.

Guess Janet Napolitano was ‘right’, labeling war veterans ‘lone wolf’s’ and whatnot...imagine Dad senses he’s flying solo at times.


This thread will help.

Sometimes we feel like we are all flying solo.

But we are not. And it is forums like this that make me remember it.

I wish my dad was alive so I could get his input, but I think I know.

I can just see him sitting on the other side of the kitchen table next to the window, cigarette in one hand, coffee cup in the other with his crewcut hair and blue eyes, looking out the window.

As I ask him what he thinks of this, he would take a drag on his cigarette, pull it out of his mouth and tap the ash, exhaling the smoke in a disorganized cloud.

He would tap the ash in the tray, and while looking at it, would begin: “Well...”

I can imagine perfectly what your dad thinks of this. God bless him.
