Now that you have been introduced to the history of the Goulash Brothers, times have changed and our lives have gone on in different directions. One Goulash Brother is in Afghanistan, another one just got back from there. A third one has moved out west and I am currently stuck in the Midwest. We have all continued our lives in our own direction of choice but those days and years that we spent together in Taszar has created a bond and friendship that will last a lifetime.
We still stay in touch and with email and Skype it makes it a lot easier. Since those golden Goulash Brother years, Goulash has played another unexpected role in my life.
Just before my retirement in Bosnia at the end of the SFOR Peacekeeping mission, as a retirement present to myself, I purchased a Harley Davidson motorcycle which I had been dreaming of for many many years. In fact me and another Goulash Brothere bought the exact same bike so that we could ride down the road together, which by the way has never happened yet. One bike is in the US and the other one is in Hungary.
Since I was a veteran and at now also a Harley owner a good friend of mine talked me into joining his motorcycle club the VNV MC (Viet Nam Vets MC) and the road name that I was given was Goulash.
I wonder where that came from?
