Remembering Dad

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.

Paul, dad, world war II, GI, army, chicago, lake front, the rocks
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!
