When the Eagle Cries

Graduating High School in SoCal 1964, we were foot loose and fancy free, although the assassination of our President was fresh and deep in our hearts . Little did we know that the evil that spread from that, would entangle our generations, and corrupt our government at it's core. I can relate to this picture below, being a veteran Plumber since 1974,

One year later, myself and my whole graduating class of boys (221) were "drafted" without numbers, and sent to Vietnam.
It happened to almost 100,000, 1964 graduating male students all across the country.
We all opened our "orders to report", on basically the same day, and what a "dagger" in the heart, especially for our heroic WWII parents.

In fun, I new LBJ had drafted us because me and my friends had snuck by his Marine MP's, with their jeeps and rifles, into "Trestles" (Camp Pendleton) on three different occasions to surf some of the best waves on the coast.
With only 3 or 4 of us out all day, and the MP's yelling at us, they were pissed, but it is public water, and we have a right to be in our public spaces without a bunch of "know nothings" yelling at us, even TPGP.

I pay tribute to my son Evan who served 3 tours over seas as a Ranger and a Black Hawk Pilot. He just retired but also endured "coming home" to a mostly uncaring public.
