I was waiting around for an appointment the other day (one of those "we'll be there anywhere from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. types) when I started scribbling down a few ideas about how to help other college veterans become successful early on in their college careers.  I decided to put it to piece it together, revise it 3 or 4 times, and submit it as a guest blog to the Veterans Association website, where it was immediately accepted and they had very nice words to say about it.  It felt really great; not just having something posted, but using my words and new experiences to help other post-military college vets start achieving success.  Several other organizations have already re-posted it to their websites, and hopefully we'll see some positive results with more veterans becoming leaders in their local communities in the next year or so.

Tony, I'm very proud of you. You have a beautiful voice that will continue to bring strength to those who hear it. I've always been touched by your writing and found myself opened up to new worlds through it. It sounds like other people are as well. I'm glad to call you a friend.
