Today is Veterans Day & it has me thinking about my late-dad. Not so much because he was a veteran of the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, but because he's been gone for four-years now & I don't think about him as often as I did.
When I do, it makes me sad. I miss him. There were so many things I still needed to ask him.
Like most veterans, he never really talked about his service, outside the one-time when he talked (a little) about being in Europe, after WWII. And even though it was years-later, the continent was still devastated. He told me about families living in bombed-out buildings & not having food.
My dad was a veteran & my hero & I remember him today.
