As the Title suggests I am a vet, and proud of it, and proud of all those that wear the uniform of the United States of America. You name it we'll talk about it. Politics, sports and much more. However, I am also very interested in what is happening to this great country of ours, politically and socially...So SOUND OFF PRIVATE!!!

Is Too Much Time Taken...NOT A CHANCE!!!

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the newest addition to the Drake Clan. His name is Samuel Hagerty, born August 15, 2006. He is the son of Capt. Scott Hagerty (USAR) and Daphne Hagerty (my daughter).

This is one of the reasons for which I have not been blogging much lately. He is a wonderful joy and occupies much of my off time. His father Scott was on assignment in East Africa at the time, but was given leave to be present for his birth in August. Scott is now back in Africa, but should be able to be home for the holidays. This is Scott's second year of being away on military orders. His first stint was in Iraq for 12 months, during the transition period. He was a liason between the US and the interim PM, and worked in intelligence information gathering, which by the way helped lead to the capture of Saddam and other hinchmen in his circle.

Samuel is my second grandson and both spend a lot of time at our humble abode. At the time this photo was taken, Samuel just turned 2 months old. So if I am not online, you will now know why. Got to enjoy them while they are young, and while there is still time to do so.
