A Message from Our Team

In honor of Veteran’s Day on November 11, this month’s message is from Charlie Miller, a U.S. Army veteran.  Charlie is our director of operations and coordinates between our different departments.  He sees to the distribution and advertising sales accounting management, and runs our IT department as well.  

For me, Veteran’s Day, on November 11, is a time to remember everybody who served our country.  Just the date alone signifies a lot.  It was the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month that WWI ended.  It was the greatest horror the world had seen to that date, and it was why we chose that date to commemorate our veterans.

I’m also a veteran.  I was born in Morgantown, West Virginia, and joined the military right out of high school.  I was in the United States Army from 1993 to 1999, acting as a Psychological Operations Tactical Team Chief.  I served in Haiti for both operations Uphold/Maintain Democracy in 1995; and I spent the last few years of my career training other PSYOP soldiers on PSYOP tactics as well as advanced land navigation training with the first generation of GPS.

I was a history major in college, and I’m a history buff to this day.  One of my other favorite pastimes is to visit Warbird Park in the Market Common.  There’s a bench there where you can sit and see the planes as they land and take off from the Aviation Airport in the Market Common.  It makes them appear as if they’re appearing from nowhere.

We hope you enjoy our articles this month.  There are so many people in our community who are working to help support others in one capacity or another, and we hope their stories inspire you to reach out in whatever capacity you can this month and beyond.  In honor of Veteran’s Day, be sure to check out our interview with local World War II veteran, John Walker.  Happy Veteran’s Day to all fellow veterans, and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

– Charlie Miller  Director of Operations

November is here which means the days are shorter, and sometimes have a slight nip; the nights certainly do.  Fall has found us, and summer, with it’s energy of exuberance, fun, and frivolity has departed to be replaced with the more somber tone that confirms: in nature, all things stay in balance.  Hey, I guess …
