For all who served

This link will take you to a shaky video I did of my father on his trip to Washington, DC, as part of an Honor Flight tour in 2010. He passed away earlier this year, and this Memorial Day is especially touching for me. He was proud of his WWII service in the Navy, and lucky to go in at the tail end of the war. He was still finishing his senior year in high school when he began his year of service.

I remember attending Memorial Day services at the cemetery every year, and dad wore his Legion uniform. He was still putting on that uniform to honor veterans at their funerals when he was in his 80s. Today, I remember him in that uniform.
