Ladies and Gentlemen, Wednesday morning June 6, 2012, I have the privilege of escorting my Father on a Honor Flight from Oklahoma City to the war memorial in Washington D.C. It is a unique trip because we will be in DC on the anniversary of D-day. This group in OKC puts these wonderful trips together. Dad is a Navy vet, 90 years young. He always has a story and is quick with a smile. He witnessed the signing of the Japanese peace treaty because his ship was moored to the Missouri for defensive purposes in case of a kamikaze attack. I'm not sure how many of those gentlemen are still alive but I'm sure the number is small and getting smaller every day! I'm so proud of him and his service! I'm his youngest son at 50 years old. He's lost a wife (after 40 years of marriage)and a son (who was 22) but endured it all with grace. I don't know why I felt the need to post this tonight. I'm just feeling love for him this evening while I'm enjoying my home that he and many men like him fought for in a war that truly shaped the world. They are the greatest generation. Sorry for rambling. You can follow me on twitter @okieshooter for updates.
