When I met my current husband, I was already divorced and only 23. The night he met my husband, he said, “He seems like a really nice guy but he’s got shell shock.” My husband is a Vietnam veteran. I had no idea what he was talking about and when I asked him to explain it, he told me to go to the library because war changes people.
I spent all my free time at the library with clinical books and a dictionary, learning as much as I could. The more I learned, the more I fell in love. Not just with the man I would end up marrying, but loved my Dad more and all veterans. Now they call it PTSD.
My Dad started what turned out to be my life’s work. Thousands of articles, books, videos, several websites and more, all started because of my Dad’s life in the Army. Over the years, I’ve had many messages thanking me for what I do and to pass appreciation on to my husband for his service. I just wanted you to know, that had it not been for my Dad, I don’t think any of this would have started.
This is why today the featured video is, Dan Fogelberg, The Leader Of The Band.
If you’ve sent me emails thanking me for what I do, and thanking my husband for his service, I wanted you to know that none of this would have happened if my Dad didn’t understand what he saw in my husband. It is a good reminder that we never know how much we do change the world when we are willing to do what we can, when we can, when we are willing to try.
Remember, it is your life…get in and drive it!
