Overcome House

Veteran's Day

My father Alleycat and my mom Crash on their wedding day. Alleycat served in Viet Nam, one of the airmen involved in secret business in Laos that Never Happened. (If you saw TOP GUN, he was doing things that would have gotten him disavowed if he'd been shot down or captured.)

My brother Zonker joined the Air Force also, and met his second wife in Korea. He also punched a superior officer and spent some time in the brig.

My youngest brother Kipper is in the Army, and is currently home from a tour in Afghanistan -- hopefully for good.

My uncle McCloud was a Marine in Viet Nam.

Thank you, gentlemen.
