    Wow, Korea and Vietnam. Young people today don't understand or appreciate the sacrifices men like your Dad and his families made. I had the honor of sharing a beer with Korea Veteran a few weeks ago. I sat and talked with him for a couple hours. An amazing man from an amazing generation...I'm sure your Dad was cut from the same amazing cloth. Here's to your Dad and all of our amazing Veterans on Memorial Day.

    I miss my dad today and on his birthday. He would have been 83 this past March.
    He was a Korean vet, as was his older brother Ray.
    My dad had it easy as he knew some guys there who got him into playing baseball for the officers and dignitaries, and then when baseball was all done they asked if he knew how to play volleyball, and he said "no, but I'm gonna learn real fast".

    My uncle was an MP on the Han river, and wasn't so fortunate, and he remembers it turning red sometimes, as the fighting upstream would be ungodly sometimes.

    Remember our vets,

    I'm sorry for the loss of your Dad a few years ago. Bless him for his service to our country. The greatest generation is rapidly leaving us and that's a real shame.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    My condolences.
    My father was also a vet. Vietnam 65-66. He died Feb 1, 2007, and I think about him everyday.

    Godspeed to our fathers.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.
