It took me years to figure out why I was so jumpy in early September. The nights get longer, my heart races, and my nerves jingle. My startle response is much quicker and my temper much shorter. I know it will pass, but it makes for a few interesting days. The reunion in Detroit has helped as has keeping in contact with some who share my experience. Semper Fi to all my bothers out there and those who went before at Khe Sahn and Margo.
