My dad, God rest his soul (I can still say that can't I?), was a vet from Korea. He taught me life skills including but not limited to rifle skills and marksmanship. He taught me respect for life and how to face the challenges that it threw at you. I miss not being able to talk to him.
To my oldest son and daughter-in-law, I thank you for your service. (both are Air Force vets)
To my middle son and youngest daughter, I hope that I have done half the job for you that my father did for me.
For my wife, I promise to love and protect you.
My thanks to all the vets.
