Definition of a Veteran - We gave up our liberty so that others would have theirs. Liberty is the term used for time off and for sailors, in my opinion, it was the most accurate service term I think I heard in my years of service. Off the base for five hours, more precious than money, “liberty” to make our own decisions/choices; not being told what to do, when to do it, or how to do it, which had been our life 24/7 for six weeks. The uniform squared away, and my memories from 40 years ago, fresh in my mind and heart, I knew I was ready to share my passion and love of the Coast Guard with a new generation.
