Houston Rodeo Revisited

Yet again my hat is off to the Houston Rodeo! Before the three-week-long event ended on March 20, I was invited back a second time, along with other wounded warriors, for the “swine auction,” which was preceded by one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had: eggs, bacon and sausage, of course, along with pancakes, pastries and even cake!

Once we were fed, the event started much the same as a Major League Baseball game, with a presentation of the colors and the singing of the national anthem. Then all of the military veterans on hand were called up on stage, including two each from the Army, Navy and Coast Guard, as well as three from the Air Force and the Marines, of which I was one. The cheering crowd welcomed us in a way that Texans are pretty amazing at. Again, thanks to the Houston Rodeo for setting such an awesome exampleDonny Daughenbaugh, USMC (ret.)
