50 years ago yesterday, I arrived back home in Nashville after my tour in Viet Nam.
I was on the phone this afternoon with a friend whose son is in Army Airborne School. The conversation got me to thinking about my time in the service and how long ago it was. A few years ago, I was at a reception, and I meet an admiral. Looking over his decorations, I realized that he was too young to have any of the combat decorations I had received.
I am getting old.
