Eye Love the Dodgers
I was the keynote speaker at a luncheon yesterday for the Disabled Veterans Business Council of California. I was proud to do it because the DVBC sets up veterans who run their own businesses with clientelle.
It is always a privilege to be amongst America’s heroes, the men and women who have fought for, and sacrificed so much for us. I have been to Walter Reed a few times and every time I go I am amazed that despite the loss of limbs, and other devistating injuries, the troops want to go back. They want to rejoin their commrades and finish the mission.
They are my heroes.
Yesterday I met someone who really impressed me. His name is Augustine Curiel, and he served in the U.S. Navy First, and most importantly, he impressed me with his call to duty as he served his country in war. Second, he is a Dodger fan.
How do I know that?
Well, he lost an eye, and embedded in his glass eye is the Dodger logo.
There’s a saying in this country; if you don’t pull for the Dodgers, you may not get into heaven. We know Augustine is in!
