Day after Thanksgiving I met Heather down that road beside the military reserve base. This is the usual walk she does not far from her home in the valley basin. During heavy rains it can be shut down as it is close to a local dam and floods. The area has been developed along side a local golf...

Do you remember what article of clothing you coveted in middle school?  Did you long for bellbottoms, Guess Jeans, or a cool pair of Doc Martins?  No matter when the decade, there is always an “it” piece or fad that defines a period of time.  But trends aren’t limited to just fashion...

As we remember that Osama bin Laden was killed a year ago and that the war in Afghanistan goes on, we should remember the Fall of Saigon, 1975. I was a new military member with less than a year in service, serving at my first location after training. My thoughts were still bright with American...
