Out and About – Week of February 29th

I have recently come to the conclusion that chivalry is indeed dying. It’s just not that important anymore, much like social graces.

I was extremely lucky to have a very good assignment when I served in Vietnam in 1966. It was the one conflict when those who served their country were not welcomed home with the kudos they deserved. Since that time, our veterans have been shown the respect and the thanks that those who put their lives on the line deserve …
