Best wishes to all my fellow veterans. This year in particular, I'm thinking of Jimmy M, --Korean war Marine -- who passed away a couple of months ago at age 80 something. I was Navy, but I always respected Jimmy's annual November Marine Corps anniversary event in his restaurant. One year, my wife and I were eating in the dining room, while Jimmy was hosting the event for the local Marines in the bar -- cutting the cake with a sword. Jimmy, knowing I was a Vietnam sailor, brought a piece of the Marine's cake back to our table for my wife and me--an unexpected and unearned honor from Jimmy and his Marine Corps that I will always remember.
