Happy Veterans Day from Ventriloquist Central

Veterans Day
Honoring All Who
Have Served

Today, in America, this happens to be one of the most important days in my mind, the observance of Veterans day because of the sacrifice that so many American men and women have made to keep our country the free democracy in which we live.

I am a Navy veteran of the Vietnam era and I agree with the words that President Obama spoke yesterday when he addressed the attendees at the Fort Hood memorial. To paraphrase, it makes no difference which generation of military you are today’s is just as important as the past.

But this is a celebration of those who made the ultimate sacrifice and we at Ventriloquist Central honor you all!!

    Although I got into the lost art in 1950 and retired from the lost art in 1965, the real reason left it off was in 1967 when my brother died in combat in Vietnam. I turned down a lucrative deal with REA as its spokesperson because did not feel right about it under the circumstances, his funeral that very week. I do not regret my decision in helping my father in a law practice for forty years in the interim and so it appears that was my calling. But when my father passed on did get back in it in 2003 at least to extent of telling what I know and remember about Berger, Marshall, and Lester, and what I learned from them on the importance of banter, patter, and bits of business, but also in memory of my brother Howard Hadden Dean on this Veteran’s Day.
