The Captain

31st place
While biking early one morning around Key West, I encountered The Captain who was fall down drunk at 7:30 a.m. I chatted him up learned he was a marine and Vietnam vet. I shook his hand and thanked him for putting his life on the line so I could be free to wander around with my Nikon. I couldn't help but ponder the path his life took to get him from newborn infancy holding a bottle while in his mother's loving arms to fall down drunk after serving our country holding a bottle in the mean street
