On Fathers Day in Santa Monica with my wife, Lydia, son, Ryan and daugther, Heather, they had me cozy up to them on the couch to open my gifts and to peek at the laptop sitting on the coffee table. Boom, there are all of the posts from the “TucsonCitizen.com,” where Veteran Veritas had its origin in June of 2009, until the sudden and perfunctory closing of the site by Gannett news on January 31st, 2o14. I thought for sure all of our archives were gone. But no, my wonderful kids and my daughters significant other, Nigel, found them and created this Blog as a gift. I cried. So here we go, on the next round of blogesphere adventure.
