RIP George HW Bush

I learned this morning that my wartime President has passed away.  I was trying to think how many presidents I served during my military career, and I believe that it's five.  Ford, Carter, Reagan, GW Bush, and Clinton.    President GW Bush was the one that called me to active duty in 1990 for Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

That operation was some of the best times I ever had in the military.  It was adventure from start to finish, and frankly, I had a ball.  Those were good times.  We knew who the enemy was and we had clear objectives.  Soldiering was great during that operation.

We've pretty much been fighting in those same God-forsaken deserts ever since.
