It’s Armed Forces Day!

Let’s give thanks to all the active duty and reserves airmen (and women), soldiers, marines, sailors, guards (Coast Guard and National Guard), members of the Space Force, and all those who defend our country. Since next Monday is Memorial Day, we can offer a silent moment in thanks for their sacrifice.

While I’m not very often rah-rah with patriotism, I was an officer in the Air Force right after college. And, once you take that oath of office to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, with your life if necessary, it leaves an indelible mark on your soul. At least it did for me.

Now the fact that I was commissioned an officer and a gentleman by an Act of Congress still amuses me. Since an Act of Congress does not really a gentleman make.

After 18 years of providing computer consulting, training and speaking, I fell into a "real" job (managing a dental specialist practice). So, I gave up my business in 2007. However, I left my websites up (although stagnant) since I never gave up hope of some day getting back into training and writing. I recently decided it was time to do something with them and realized I have a lot of really good stuff here. And, most of it is actually still relevant. I guess it's time for me to get back into writing.
