This year it's more than personal.
The two most prominent guiding lights in my life are war veterans. My grandfather served 46 days shy of two years in the South Pacific during WWII. Grandpa was 31 the day he volunteered to join the Army, married, and helping his father run a successful family business. Three days prior, his younger brother had been drafted and joining Lil Johnny “was just the right thing to do.”
My father was one of the many Marines who didn't know where Vietnam was the day he received his deployment papers. Dad’s first tour lasted 14 months, which earned him almost 90 days of approved leave – just enough time to meet and fall in love with Mom. To the dismay of friends, family and his new love, Dad volunteered to return to Vietnam for another tour. In his head, “it was such a mess over there, it was just the right thing to do.”
Celebrating Veteran's Day has always been very personal for me, but this year it takes on a much different level. I walked away from comfortable and lucrative corporate job offers to pursue my dream of creating something of value, serving others, and owning my own business. I chose to pursue a greater calling, rather than play the safe and secure game.
Listen to Life with Curiosity….
Growing up in a family of veterans, my life lessons included many of the core principles instilled in our US Military: honor, discipline, respect, commitment, God… these were the fundamental building blocks of my upbringing. Other than a few speed bumps during my teens, I know that I am a better man, husband, father today because of such life lessons. My life was enriched, because I was willing to listen, learn, and adhere to the advice of others who had seen, done, and accomplished so much.
While I did not end up on the formal military path, I was bitten by the same entrepreneurial bug as my father and grandfather. Both were successful, and most of all, happy, small business owners. Given the recent successful launch of TETRA, not a day has passed without thought of the veterans in my life and all they have taught me. Their commitment, in and out of the military, paved the road for my life to prosper.
Nothing ever given. Always earned.
The chance to have a cold beer and cheeseburger with my grandfather tomorrow, would be my definition of priceless. Knowing him, if he could bust Jesus out of heaven for a few hours, they would road trip to meet me!
God Bless America and God Bless our Veterans.
