Today

November 11, 2011

Today, I think of the father I didn’t know. As a child I spent very little time with my biological dad. But today I think about him and do know that as a Navy sailor and a very young one at that, that he must have carried memories of being on a ship that was fired at repeatedly. I am sure this changed his life in ways I will never know. I also acknowledge my step-father who  served as a paratrooper.  Today I say” Thank you”  to  all Veteran’s and for those that continue to sacrifice on our behalf…

    Wonderful photos to go with your tribute Roberta…
    My father was a young man in Iran during WWII and he didn’t serve in the military. My Father in law served in WWII as did my Mother in laws brothers. I have one Brother in law that served in Viet Nam and it forever changed him and not in a good way, that’s why I pray that God will guard our son in laws heart and mind while he is serving.

    Roberts, thanks for sharing your story of these heros. My Dad was a Navy sailor too. He’s in a VA hospital still. Your photos are a nice tribute.

    So many have given so much, and I just can’t understand why it all had to be.

        Yes, or of life itself. My older brother was a young Marine officer during the battle for Iwo Jima.
