The Air Force Birthday was yesterday, not a significant milestone year, but a marker nonetheless. As a young officer, not much was done to celebrate the date. In fact, I didn’t know much about service birthdays until I served alongside some Marines and got to witness t...

Today, 232-years ago, people who had endured great hardship in a long war signed their names to a revolutionary document: The United States Constitution. It’s not a long document, but the foundation of a governmental “experiment” that has lasted much longer than many t...

Last week, one of the days was National Senior Citizen Day, and my human said I could celebrate, too. But I’m not old. Well, maybe my records at the vet say I’m senior. And maybe m...
