I feel quite safe in saying that the majority of Veterans watched the film ” Good Morning Vietnam “,

The late Robin Williams played the lead role. That of   a United States Air Force sergeant and radio personality whose experiences as an innovative disc jockey on American Forces Network during the Vietnam War inspired the 1987 film Good Morning, Vietnam.

R I P Sgt Adrian Cronauer USAF: 

For those who live in North America a wee bit of TRIVIA:  Adrian Cronauer was replaced in Vietnam by a Young Pat Sajak of ” Wheel of Fortune ” fame

Terrible news from Toronto “the GOOD ” as it was known when I was a child. A multiple shooting on the Danforth.

Toronto police services removed the shooter with a fatal shot. Bravo Zulu to the Police.

Heavy hearts for the  dead and wounded, enjoying an evening out with family and friends.

Reading tweets on line the majority are wondering what has happened to their City? alongside their Condolences.

Meanwhile the Orange Man of the South….. has tweeted the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. The use of CAPITAL letters denotes shouting? does the President of USA not understand?

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!

Sadly on this Monday it is difficult to find a good news story, but this is what I found.

What made you choose a career as a padre in the military?
It was a personal journey that inspired me to want to do more for the people that I serve. I remember when I was an infantry officer, my bosses would often comment on how close I was to my people. My first impulse was always to take care of my soldiers, and after meeting some really devoted chaplains, I realized that it was my calling to join the chaplaincy. My primary focus as a chaplain is to make sure that people are well – to support them, to walk with them, to journey with them, because I think a chaplain can be part of the success of a mission by making sure that our people are happier, and that they have an opportunity to increase their spiritual resiliency.

This is a story of an Infantry officer turned PADRE.  PADRES are the men and women who care for soldiers and their families. BRAVO ZULU to all PADRES.

On that note please remember your Veterans, your Serving Military and their families and loved ones.
