Blogging Is Overrated
There is this 96 year old veteran I often speak to every now and again, He always tells me stories about his time in spent fighting in  Europe during world war II. He landed at Utah Beach on D-day, and fought five separate campaigns.
I have no idea what any of these pins on his hat mean but he’s obviously a bad ass muthafucka.
One of these days I should ask for a proper photo of him instead of sneaking a shot of his hat.
