I spent 20 years in the military and I retired almost 27 years ago on December 1, 1993. As much crap as I got involved in, as much time as I spent at sea, you'd think I'd been through it all.
But, this past Veteran's Day, November 11, 2020, after COVID had been kicking my ass for the better part of 10 days, EMS showed up and took me to the hospital, where I spent the day getting IVs, steroid treatments, poked and prodded and breathing treatments.
Here I am almost a week later and I finally made it back to work, although on a somewhat limited schedule while I try to regain my strength.
This is no joke- please stay home and stay safe.
