Happy 90th Birthday, Colonel

April 14th, 2012

While riding earlier this week, I met a woman named Pam who had a great deal of praise for The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes. Her family has a long history of Heroes who have protected our liberties and freedom. She is a very proud woman and knows the need of teaching children about Heroes.
Today is her father’s 90th birthday,  Air Force Colonel (Ret.) John Coulahan, who spent much of his career in the Strategic Air Command.   He is a graduate of West Point and had a long career in the military. He helped to keep the peace with the Armistice after WWII. During the Vietnam era, he was the commander at the Phu Cat Air Base. His entire family is coming in town from across the country to help him celebrate. Happy Birthday Colonel and thank you for your service to our country.
Today is a day off from riding and I am going to use the time to help my nephew Ed and niece Meredith move. I need to help Pay it Forward from all of the great kindness bestowed on me every day.
