Proud Veteran

One Navy Veteran Helping Others
Our Branches may be competitive but we're all on the same Team.

John F. Kennedy once said:

"Any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile... can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction, 

'I Served in the United States Navy.'"

I believe it's a fair assumption today.. that times have changed as has today's Military.   I believe had that statement been made today he would have said "Any Man or Woman".  I also feel this statement applies to all brances of the service .. for as a whole.. we can all be Proud to have served in the United States Military!

*Special Note: Recently at the Detroit Veterans Hospital (John D Dingle Medical Center) I met a few guys from A Veteran's Organization dealing with POW/MIAs. The Michigan Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall was there. In talking with them  they gave me their informatio pamphlet, unfortunately I did drop it in my travels which I only discovered upon return home. Should any of those gentlemen read this.. please feel free to contact me (via the contact section) so that perhaps I can get some of that information back along with your website information which was on the back of the pamphlet.  Thank You for your time and God Bless.

While at the Detroit V.A. Hospital I had the chance to meet some of the staff from Paralyzed Veterans of America.
