My Dad served in the Army as a Lieutenant. My older brother Tom retired from the Air Force last year, at the rank of Colonel. He went to the Air Force Academy and then went on to become a fighter pilot. Both my Uncles Ed and William were Lieutenants. I was also served in the Navy. Today I am grateful for all those who served and continue to serve this free country!
I only saw my Dad cry one time in his life. We were watching late night TV and back then when the shows for the night the station would play the National Anthem. That is the time I saw my Dad in tears.
He passed away from cancer 24 years ago. I remember him today.
