rafi is on a distinguished road

I flew home last night from Miami to Connecticut.

On the flight was a veteran from Afganistan, traveling with his wife.
Handsome excellent muscualture big smile on his face. Proudly still wearing his unit t shirt.

He boarded first, as both of his legs were lost in the war, and needed the extra time to get settled. My impression of him was that he was approaching life from the viewpoint of that he is now more challenged, but he certainly was not handicapped.

A sobering reminder of who the real heros are, and that for so many,the fighting never ends.
