This is a post I published in a past year that I wanted to share today on Veteran’s Day.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL VETERANS OUT THERE WHO SERVED THEIR COUNTRY AND GAVE THEIR LIVES OR LIMBS TO KEEP US SAFE! I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SERVICE! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Thank you, Veterans, for all that you have done for your country.
For keeping us safe on our soil!
For protecting us and preserving our freedom!
We are indebted to you for serving your country!
May God bless you and your families for your sacrifices!
My dad served his country during WWII and received a Purple Heart.
He never wanted to talk about it back then but as he got older he shared a little of his experience of the day on Guadal Canal in 1942 when he was shot. He expressed regret that he had to shoot when being shot at and for all the men who died during that horrendous war. He was deeply saddened when he spoke of losing his ‘buddies’ as he called them, his fellow Marines. He was proud to be a Marine and was never sorry for proudly serving his country and would have done it again.
My father was small in stature, only 5’6” but he had a huge heart and was brave and talented in many ways. He was gregarious, warm, friendly, funny, and always had a beautiful smile on his handsome face. I am proud of my dad and all that he did for his country. I am thankful that I had such a wonderful father who was loving, caring and kind. Just saying this makes my eyes misty with regret that he is no longer with us. I miss him so much! Love you, Dad!
Here’s a photo of my handsome father. Unfortunately it is not a clear one but it is the only one I have with him in uniform. I loved him dearly and was proud of him and his service. I miss him and his crazy sense of humor. He died in 2001.
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!
