I couldn’t imagine how hard it is on a family to have one of its members in any part of the military.  Days, months and years go by, all with the family wondering if they will ever see mom, dad, son or daughter ever again.  But once they hit a certain age, many members of the military will retire so they can spend more time with their family.  But this soldier is dedicated to the military for life! He humbly says: “It’s just the right thing to do.”

This is the story of the oldest U.S. soldier serving in active duty on the front lines in Afghanistan. A humble man, who served his first tour of duty in Vietnam, is now at nearly 60 years old, is an inspiration to other soldiers– many of whom are one third his age. Here is his inspirational story.
