My wife suggested that we attend an outdoor concert in Simsbury, CT tonight. We're still here and I'm typing this on my smartphone during intermission. A short time ago the band played tributes to veterans of all branches of the armed forces. When music was played for each branch, respective veterans were asked to stand. Among the thousands of concertgoers a surprisingly small number of us stood.
I have to admit that I got a little choked up. It's been 37 years since my discharge but it was nice to be recognized by a very appreciative audience.
