In Honor of those who serve,on Veterans Day.
Tell their story,I'll start.
My Dad was in the Navy in WW11,served in the South Pacific as a Aviation Machinists Mate.
He never talked about it much,except when he told me a funny story of how he welded a friends lunchbox to the deck.
Miss you Dad.
Thanks for sharing.

Both of my parents were in WWII (Army) and instilled the love of God, Country and Family in my brother and sister and me. My mother was a WAC - and served in England. . .aboard the Queen Mary on the return trip to the states they were chased by a German submarine. My father served in Alaska (of course before it was a state). I miss them both terribly. I have been blessed.
My dad was in the Navy assigned to the Marines. He was a medic in Guadalcanal in WWII.
He was buried on July 4. Ever since then, when the fireworks display begins, I say “These are for you Dad.”
