Memorial Day


My Dad on Memorial Day ten years ago. It was probably his favorite day of the year. He was one of the last few surviving WWII veterans in my hometown at the time. He passed away almost eight years ago. Sadly, there are no longer any WWII vets left alive in the town.

Tom Brokaw coined the term "The Greatest Generation" to descibe people like my Dad who grew up during the Great Depression and fought in World War II. The sacrifices made by these men and women are almost unfathomable. Some debts can never adequately be repaid.
