Insincere people.

life turning point
Joined the Navy to see the world and I wasn't let down. Grew from a boy to a man with three tours of duty in Vietnam and Thailand during the Vietnam War. Learned that "Freedom is not free."
in 10 years I'll be
Probably still working and enjoying life to the fullest.

Be taking a pee to get rid of all the coffee I had this cold winter morning.
