It's Father's Day today and many of us here in the United States are thinking about and maybe even spending time with our fathers, grandfathers, or step-fathers. My dad Paul passed away about 20 years ago, but my memories of him are still fresh in my mind. I have this photograph of him I keep on display as a reminder of who he was before I came along.
My dad served in the United States Army during World War II. He was stationed in Iwo Jima and stayed there until the war was over. I love how awesome he looks in this photograph, even though these were hard times. He never talked about his war days; only jokingly said he peeled a lot of potatoes. I miss you dad - Happy Father's Day!
