My Army Tribute Bike
October 10, 2021

In my retirement years, I enjoy my hobby of fixing up old motorcycles. I have fun with the challenges and it keeps me busy. I got lucky and found a rare 1980 black and gold Midnight Special with the intention of restoring it to its original glory.

Am I a Real Vietnam Veteran?
Feb 17, 2021

Have you ever asked yourself that question? I have, and I’ve struggled with the answer since the day I returned home from Vietnam in January 1972. That in itself seems to be an odd statement. Of course, I am a Vietnam Veteran if I did a tour in Vietnam. Right? Well yeah, I was there but the question is: “Am I a ‘REAL’ Vietnam Veteran?” Read the rest of the essay here…
