Just a public note of thanks here to the crew at Politickernj.com;
namely editor Darryl Isherwood and correspondent extraordinare Max “Mad Max” Pizarro.
Darryl not only posted on his site the Veterans Day blog post I wrote about my father’s link with the Battleship New Jersey (and a tenuous but appreciated association I share with him with the great warship), but then with input from Max, put him in their “Winners” column for the week.
Needless to say, it made a humble World War II Navy vet’s day and meant the world to him not just for himself but for the recognition such an act brings to all our veterans who’ve proudly served, and continue to serve, this great nation.
So a strong salute and a tip of the cap to Darryl, Max and Politickernj.com for a class act by a standup group.
I thank you again here publicly to acknowledge that act and share it with my blog’s readers.

And to get in step with the so many others who blog, too; some of them for a living and for some smaller number a pretty darned good living at that from what I hear. (more…)
