"My Big Brother"
My Big Brother Johnny was a good father, husband, son, brother, friend, scholar, gardener, and war hero. He cared passionately about people, and the world. He started an outreach, and homeless rescue, and rehabilitation center for the veterans of his war, Vietnam, and all the others that followed. The complex now bears his name.
Btw he was commended by three different Presidents from both parties for his Veterans outreach work. John was further honored by being the first veteran to be buried in the new military cemetery in San Diego a few days ago.
He also thought my being Queer was fine. Back in the day that really mattered.
