Oklahoma Military Academy- Centennial

This past weekend marked the 100th anniversary of the creation of a Military School in Oklahoma. It was a uniformed/boarding school with full military regimen. I graduated from OMA in 1968. A year later I enlisted in the Army and went to Vietnam as ground-pounding Infantry. The best job in the US Army. Then and now.  That little school on a hill in Oklahoma, influenced my life. It might have even saved my life.

WA4D is in the gym 5-6 days a week    (2 hours a day)

There’s a big sign on the wall in my gym. It reads, “1 in 3 adults in the USA are ‘Pre-Diabetic’ – are you?”  of that group, 70% will graduate to full on Type-2 diabetes.  If you’re not eating right and exercising….

well, do I really need to finish that sentence?
