Sometimes things happen that make you feel old.
A few weeks ago I got an email from an Army UH-60 Blackhawk pilot stationed overseas who sent me some cartoons. He is a proud member of the Air Cav, and his cartoon strip pokes fun at the lives of Army helo pilots. He has been published in theater and in the Ft. Campbell Courier.
In his email he told me that we had met about a dozen years ago. He told me that his dream was to fly, and good for him – he did it. He also said I gave him a book, and it’s pretty cool that he is doing that too.
None of that makes me feel old.
When we met, he was a 15-year old high school student. Now he flies Blackhawks for the Army.
That makes me feel old.
Good luck Evan DeWan – you’re on your way!
