Thank you to all our veterans and also those actively serving.
My father was ROTC in college and was approached by an officer who was interested in Physics. My father ended up with a PhD in Physics. The officer wanted him in his unit for his research. So, my dad went to an Air Force base in Massachusetts (I think or my mom was living in Massachusetts with my sister and brother). However, the officer had been transferred and the new commander didn't want him. So, he ended up discharged after a few months. I just found out a couple of months ago that he was training to be a pilot.
