From the Editor

 
The Military and Veterans Travel Planner Site

  •            is a gift to:
  • Those  who are serving or have served in the US Armed Forces and their families.
  • Those individuals who because of physical, emotional, or financial limitations are unable to travel in the real worsted would like to experience it vicariously. through the sights and sounds of the Internet.
  • For anyone who wishes  to plan their travel virtually prior to travel to completely familiarize themselves with their selected destinations.
Simply stated, the goal is to enrich the life of others by providing Internet resources that hopefully can improve the quality of life of the site user. n the past 4 years I have spent thousands of hours developing the site using my limited writing and research skills directed towards the stated goal.

PERSONAL INFORMATION


I am reminded of the famous saying "Old Soldiers never die, we just feel
and look that way". I was recently declared "legally blind". On Oct 12th I was  admitted to the Westhaven, CT VA Hospital for 5  weeks to learn how to live and get the accusative technology tools necessary to maintain my sight and site. It was a great experience. If any of you are having sight problems, contact the VA  VISS coordinator in your area.

Thus past year I hace survived thyroid cancer, going blind, a thoractic aneurism  and other physical conditions. One of the bright lights in my life have been my daughter, and my talented grandchildren.  They are the bright spots in my life that keep me centered and focussed.
  I recently attended My Granddaughter Casey's Pop Rock concert at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. My daughter sang backup vocals for Casey (I had booked my daughter in this club 24 years ago). my granddaughter Mary was selling Casey's CDs and my grandson, Bill was selling Casey's T-shirts. They are part ofmy legacy. Thank you  God. To quote Yogi Berra "It was deja vue all over again" Would you kindly review the following page o to see how beautiful and talented Casey is.
