We at Purposeful Financial Planning wish a Happy Veterans Day to all who have served as a member of the armed forces. It's because of you that each of us can enjoy safety and freedom. We thank you for all you have done for our country. Those of us who live in freedom will always be grateful to those who helped preserve it. May God bless you. Today we would like to honor relatives of our team members who have actively served our country. Steve Martin ~

My father was Archie R. Kachel, Master Sergeant, U.S. Air Force, World War II & Korean War. He worked on bombers and jets - now known as Strategic Air Command.
This picture of Dad and me was taken in 1950 at Johnson Air Base, Honshu, Japan. We were 650 miles from North Korea.
Their plane was shot down in the Pacific near North Korea, and Dad rescued the pilot. He retired after 25 years of service. Over his 25 years of service Archie served in Japan, Germany, Greenland, and eight different tours of duty in the United States. His wife and four children traveled with him except for the Greenland assignment.
