This post is in honor of my Dad a Purple Heart Veteran of the Korean War. He died at the age of 45 in 1976 and was buried with full military honors. He taught my brother's and I our love for this country with his unfailing love for America. I still fly Old Glory in the front of my house every day in his honor.......in honor of all servicemen and women from around the world who have given so much for our freedom.
My most prized possession is the American flag that draped his casket. Folded so nice and neatly by his comrades it rests in a beautiful wooden triangle case over my fireplace with his picture.
Thank you Daddy - - - you're my hero!!!
Thank you to every American soldier and their families.
This is one of my favorite picture's in the whole world of my dad on a little R&R with his buddy in Korea. That's my daddy on the left with his beautiful smile..........
You probably don't know his story
Most will never speak his name
You won't see him in your dreams tonight
But you owe him just the same
Since that awful day in September
He's proudly stood to fight
To serve his grieving nation
He needed to do what was right
He'd never admit to being a hero
That's not was heroes do
Instead of basking in the limelight
He's fighting for the red, white, and blue
Every moment he misses his family
Every day brings another fight
But, it's a small price to pay for freedom
To let his son sleep safe at night
He never asked to leave his family
He didn't ask to go to war
Never once has he asked himself
What in the hell am I fighting for?
Let somebody else fight for freedom!
I'm tired of getting low pay!
This is what I get for the sacrifice,
Of giving my life away?
He proudly serves his country
He wears his ribbons for all to see
He's served Old Glory with honor
And he's fought for our liberty.
Please remember all of our brave servicemen who have given so much on this Memorial Day.
****"America, America God shed His grace on thee. And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!!"
