Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
I’m an older British veteran, living in America, teaching younger American veterans about climate change and about renewable energy, which is the leading solution to climate change. I came about this career in a roundabout way. First I was a British working-class kid from one of those stone and brick British industrial cities, a knockabout brat who liked to fix motorcycles. I also liked to go hiking in the mountains with my friends during the school holidays. Then, thanks to fixing bikes, I was an aircraft engineering technician for the Royal Air Force (the “RAF”), the world's first, 100 years old this year, which led to five and a half years as a mountain rescue “troop” with their Mountain Rescue Service. That made me a military medic. So, I finished up with three MOSs for the price of one.
