I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers. I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.
Happy Veterans Day. The photo is of my father (right) in Burma circa 1943. He spent over 3 years in the India/Burma theater. He won a Bronze Star for going behind enemy lines and repairing and flying out a downed aircraft.
I too am a veteran but no heroics here. During the height of the Vietnam war I spent nearly 3 years in Munich, Germany. The picture is of me in 1968.
