Many think our troops are returning home and that the war is over. To the contrary, there are still 101,000 troops in Afghanistan alone. While approximately 30,000 of them are scheduled to be withdrawn by December of 2012, which will still leave close to 70,000 men and women in an increasingly dangerous war zone.

The University of South Florida, in collaboration with Student Veterans Association and Circle K International are coordinating the “Remember Our Heroes Concert and Field Day” charity event on Sept. 8th 2012 to benefit the nonprofit organization, Soldiers Angels and therein the military personnel serving overseas and their families.

Sirio BalmelliIn earlier issues I reported on my first skydiving adventures out of Vandenberg Airport, now known as Tampa Executive Airport. I felt cocky with the first of my training jumps under my belt, and wasted no time practicing for my second. That too being uneventful, I took no break and rushed to get my third and fourth jumps in before calling it a day. And what a day! There is something to skydiving, maybe the adrenaline,  that by the end of the day has you dropping from exhaustion. I set up my tent and turned in early.
