Passing the Torch

somewhereReceived my Air Force Magazine almanac issue (September 2014) today. It lists all the civilians generals who head the major parts of the Air Force.

I’ve been retired long enough (sixteen years) that I no longer know anyone on active duty at those levels. For that matter, very few folks I knew then are still serving.

But a new generation of Americans have picked up the torch and carry it onward. Despite–perhaps because of–the stupidity in Washington (yes, I include the Pentagon in that aspersion), the men and women of our armed forces continue to protect and defend the rest of us.

God bless them all.
