My Weekly Spock: Veteran Trekkers

As yesterday was Veteran’s Day (and today it was observed), it’s a good time to remember our Star Trek friends who served their country.  For Leonard, Gene, and DeForest, it was the United States. And for James Doohan, it was for Canada.

James was also a hero of D-Day, after killing two German snipers,  having been shot at 6 times; 4 in the leg, one in   the right hand, which cost him his middle finger, and one in the chest, but his life was saved by the silver cigarette case in his breast pocket, a gift from his brother.  (for once, it was lucky he was a smoker).

Thank you our Star Trek brothers in arms for your dedicated service during WWII and early 50’s.   We are honored and forever thankful. ❤
