I was caught off guard by the change in the CDC mask guidance. I was confused and skeptical.

Then I remembered what I have been saying for months: "I'll wear a mask until Dr. Fauci tells me I don't have to."

Well, Dr. Fauci has told me I don't have to keep wearing the damned mask. I will accept the good news. Well, maybe except at Walmart - people there scare me.

I attended a commissioning this morning.

The last time I was at a commissioning ceremony was my own in 1979.

For a couple of years, I have been mentoring a young ROTC cadet as she planned her pre-law program, worked her way through the process of applying for law school, and obtaining an educational delay from the Army. She invited me to attend the commissioning. I am confident she will do well in law school and be a fine JAG officer.

I was surprised how moving I found it all to be.
