Old Veterans

Posted by Heather C. Williams at Jul 04, 2012 02:52 PM |

The word 'veteran' comes from the Latin stem 'veter' meaning "old".

Old Veterans


I dedicate July 4, 2012 to my friend and former art student, Irwin Hahn. I met Irwin when he came to my art studio in Milwaukee many years ago. He was extremely shy and yet pushed himself out of his comfort zone and came to all of my classes. He is a veteran from the Korean War and now he lives in Arizona. Irwin is one of the friendliest and most caring people I know. He creates personalized birthday cards for friends and family using his computer, old pictures, poems and his own choice of words. Every year he sends me a birthday card that warms my heart and reminds me of what friendship is all about.

A person who is a veteran of anything means the person served in some activity for a long time. Happy July 4 to ALL VETERANS of ALL ACTIVITIES!!!
