I've been recovering from the flu. (Missed only my third speech in 28 years last week.) Hence posting has lagged—other than the "SF flap." So I missed my traditional Veterans Day message. Simply put, "Thanks!"
Incredible sacrifices in Iraq notwithstanding, I dedicate this Post to the often-forgotten Korean War veterans and Viet vets. To the latter I offer the soldier-to-soldier salutation: "Welcome home!"
(San Francisco has veterans, which I know will surprise some. One such SF Vietnam vet is pictured above on Veterans Day 2006.)
