Veterans Day 2010
Sat down with my father this afternoon, having cake at the dining room table, and asked a simple question: "Dad, what did you do in WWII?"
WOW! So glad I grabbed my iPhone and hit RECORD… for the next hour he told me! I had NO IDEA he was in 19 helicopter crashes while doing his job in the Army Corps of Engineers, and as a recalled Reservist. What an amazing man. At a perky 83, the stories flowed from him as if they happened yesterday! The detail. The places. The pride.
We need to HAVE those conversations! Thank YOU to ALL who serve(d).
