|To A Veteran I Knew And Remember On Memorial Day|
By Jorge Alexandria - May 27, 2019
On this Memorial Day weekend in May of 2019, while we all gather to enjoy our barbecues, families, and our precious liberty, I will remember with fondness and deep respect my former claims assistant, Timothy Patric Archer, who served in the Vietnam War.
Tim was not only an efficient workers’ compensation claims assistant but also one of the finest men I have ever known. And I am positive I am only one of many who would say that. He was killed, not on the battlefield, but rather from battlefield stress, post-Vietnam, of a massive stroke on the night of February 24, 1999 at the age of 50.
|Growing Up In A Career Of Claims And Workers’ Compensation|
By Eddie Avilez - May 25, 2018
I’m anxious. My palms are sweaty. It took three tries but finally the Windsor knot is ready. My mind is heavy but I’ve got to get going. I can’t be late.
My first day is here, it’s time to meet my fate. This 210 freeway is bananas; it’s turning me into a crybaby. I can’t even drink coffee because my stomach is achy. An hour and a half later, my feet are numb and lazy. How do adults do this every day? I say it’s crazy!
Is it too late to call my Marine Corp recruiter back on Main Street? Maybe to calm down, I should listen to another track by NWA or Jay-Z. The doors swing open, as I enter the land of fluorescent lighting and grey cubicles… to God I pray this day goes by fast and doesn’t turn me into a pragmatic individual.
