I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

I've never used the VA medical benefits, since I do have Tricare (and now Medicare, since I'm over 65), but it's nice to know they're there if I ever do need them, especially when traveling.
That said, I do wish that Congress would "find a little of the Cowardly Lion's lost courage", and defund or repeal the Obamacare monstrosity. I see nothing good coming from it. I also expect to see the Democrats push for a "single-payer" program -- totally government-run health care similar to what they have in Britain -- as a "solution" to the problems they created with Obamacare. I hope there are still enough patriots in this nation to rise up in arms against such a "solution".
