I know what you’re thinking. But after several hours of trying this is the best I could do! Perhaps after I retire I can spend a bit more time fiddling with these tools. I needed to use Pixelmator, Acorn and Photoshop Elements to get this far, but clearly there is a lot more to it than I have been able to grasp so far. I think the graphic artist community can breathe a sigh of relief. There will be no challenge from this quarter in the near future. But I hope it tickles the intended audience all the same.
With apologies to Thomas Wolfe, I think my attempt to doctor this photo illustrates the dangers of trying to recreate my past. As one generation gives way to the next, it is worth remembering our contributions to the service of our country. Times have changed and I can only admire the courage of the new generation that faces the challenges of today. I salute you!
