On Veterans Day, November 11, 2015, I was interviewed by WMET (1160 AM) in Washington DC. The radio station thought that its listeners might enjoy hearing about the experiences of a Catholic who served in our country’s military. In particular it wanted to know how the experiences of military life affect one after discharge. Does it make one more successful or less successful? Does one retain his Catholic beliefs or reject them? In my case, I found military service focused my attention on developing goals in life and then working to achieve them. It was most definitely a valuable life experience and one I heartily recommend to all young men. Aim High!
