Thank a Veteran Day
My favorite Veteran is still alive and doing well at 86 years old. He was 18 when he was drafted into the Army to serve in WWII, and he was a gunnar and a paratrooper. If the bomb had not been dropped on Hiroshima, his unit of paratroopers would have had to of been air-dropped there, in what would've been a suicide mission more-or-less. Which means I probably wouldn't exist if that had been the case.
I'll never know or understand the extent of his emotional scars, what he went through. But I am so very proud of him...Mr. DGG, my hero, my touching stone, and most important of all, my beloved father.
It isn't nearly enough, but thank you Dad!
