Happy Memorial Day to everyone. Days like this I always think of my Dad. He has been gone a dozen years now but Memorial Day and Veteran's Day are two days that always meant a lot to him.
He went into the Army at the age of 18, served in Germany during World War II and participated in the invasion of Normandy.
When I was a small child he suffered from lots of headaches and would get very nervous at times. Today they would call this PTSD, then it was just called shell shock. He worked through it and was a great husband and father.
Thanks Dad and everyone elses Dad's, husbands, and brothers, mothers and sisters that have served to keep this country safe.
