    On this day I am recalling a conversation I had with a Corpsman. Time briefly froze, as we instinctively tighten and flexed while staring through each other. "Out-going," I muttered. "Roger that", the Corpsman whispered. Slowly, time started moving again when Corpsman added, "If it's not the out-going ... it's the in-coming. The only difference is who gets the grease ... and that's no difference at all."

    While this particular day is to honor United States Veterans, I salute all Vets of all armies. Be Safe and Godspeed.
