Vietnam Veteran Paul Elwood believes in keeping things in perspective.
"Keep your mind where it needs to be," he said.
And later. "What you do is what makes us who you are."
Elwood, 71, a retired Cecil County Public Schools administrator, recently returned from the 50th anniversary gathering for the 55th Company OCS. He was commissioned 22 June 1967 as a U.S. Army Infantry Officer. He served in the Army from 1965-1970 and was in Vietnam from 1968-69.
This was a special year for Elwood. This year to mark the half century since commissioning, they met for a special gathering at Fort Benning, Georgia.
