What is a Veteran?

“Service doesn’t end when we hang up our uniform. It ends when we hang up our boots and walk across the threshold of heaven.”

I’ve often asked myself this question while on my own journey to figure out.

“Who the Hell I am!? And what do I do now?”

A veteran, according to the web: is someone who has served in the military; a person with longtime occupation and experience in a particular field.

I’m a Navy veteran and a medical veteran. I was and still at heart a Hospital Corpsman.

What does this mean for myself or my community? It means I have skills that transcend the average civilian and a discipline you can only get in hard service!

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” — John Quincy Adams credit
