MY NUMBER ONE VETERAN....MY DAD!
Here is a picture of me and dad during his birthday celebration last June. We've always been close. I love him dearly. I admire how he has lived his life with honesty and integrity. He has worked hard all his life, never really slowed down when most men his age had retired years ago, and remains active today.
I believe this picture was taken in 1943. The sub had surfaced during a routine patrol off of New Guinea. My dad was one hot specimen! He never lacked for female companionship. I have always loved to listen to his stories about the different women. In fact, the older I get, it seems the "racier" his stories become! LOL. His favorite port was when they would go to Australia. He recently said that Australian women were the "most welcoming"! *wink* But in all seriousness, it is very interesting how couples "hooked" up in 1940's vs. how couples "hook" up in the 21st century. A man and woman communicated face to face, by snail mail, or by phone. Now, there's online dating sites, text messaging, and facebook. Very big difference, there.
I love you,
