Today is Veteran’s Day. It’s a happy day. You celebrate the vets that made it back from whatever they were doing when they were in one of the Armed Services.
I was thinking about it today as I scrolled through social media.
My middle school had a lot of teachers that were WW2 veterans. Our assistant dean, Henry Hauser was a medic at Bastogne. My basketball coach Richard Tosky, was a marine wounded at Iwo Jima. One time he showed us his scar. My history teacher, Gordon Teichmann was a Marine and fought in the Pacific. By the time we hit middle school, they were towards the end of their careers.
Each of them touched my life in a different way. I am grateful for that, and for their service.
