Honoring Our Veterans

Oldest Serving Vet Dies
5/15/09 Major Steven Hutchinson, 60, of Scottsdale, AZ, died in Iraq when a roadside bomb exploded.

Hutchinson, a Viet Nam vet, wanted to re-enlist the day after 911, but his wife objected. When she died of breast cancer, he did re-enlist in July of 2007.

Hutchinson was a pyschology professor at various California colleges, had had four marriages, no children.

It might be argued that he had poor impulse control (to re up the very day after 911 to say nothing of four wives) but certainly no one could possibly question his patriotism.
