Here are the things that have gotten my attention lately:
July 2020: Since Murphy has gone off to the Air Force Academy, I’m consuming as much information about the Academy and its history as possible. The cadets have to memorize a book called “Contrails” which contains everything you could possibly want to know about the military, the acronyms, vocabulary, history, songs, hymns, insignias, aircraft types, decorations, awards, chain of command, etc. I have an old copy, but it’s fascinating to see how the operation works in total. There’s a lot out there online in the form of videos and articles about the Academy as well. It’s all fascinating to me.
