Uneven Exchange

Yesterday, I got onto an elevator with a man in a wheel chair. Because my building includes an office providing services to veterans, and because he was wearing a military t-shirt, I asked him if he was a veteran. He was, and I thanked him for serving.

His was an old-fashioned wheel-chair without a motor, and it took him a second to get off the elevator when we reached the ground level. I held the door for him, and he gave me a hearty "thank you".

I told him he was welcome, but that I didn't think we were quite "even" yet.

Well put Dan.
And I can tell, even though I disagree with your politics, you truly do support our vets and our troops.

Feel good about yourself, now, Dan?

Tell us about YOUR military service.

By the way, how do you like the VFW building?
