Veterans: Thank You for Your Service

IMG_3720

We were proud and honored to drive Navy Veteran Steve (shown above) in today’s Veteran Day Parade on Miami Beach. We were part of the contingent from the Sunshine Corvette Club.  It was an emotional experience to learn just a bit of Steve’s 31-year military history, including time MIA in Cambodia (imagine begin a POW during the years our government didn’t acknowledge we were even in Cambodia).  Steve was a big hit with the crowd, particularly the kids, as he gave away several hundred American flags. Thank You All for Your Service.

About KFBuchsbaum

A lover of words, learning something new every day, exploring new places, and meeting people from different cultures is what feeds my spirit. One significant thing I learned from my years in market research is that time away from an experience dilutes the memories.  You lose the highs and lows and end up with middle-of-the-road impressions.  The reason I started to blog, was to capture experiences real-time, in the moment.  I hope my moments help you relive some of your own great adventures or maybe plan some new.
