Remembering my Dad on Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran’s Day and I’ve been thinking about my father, gone for almost 40 years now. It is almost inconceivable that it’s been that long, but it has. He was a career Army officer, and was serving as a Province Senior Advisor in Vietnam at the time of his death.  Like all others who put themselves in harm’s way, he deserves to be remembered and my only regret is that I didn’t long ago take the time to create a meaningful way to remember him and celebrate his life, and his service to his country. Anyway, I did something today. It’s a small tribute, but I feel closer to him at this moment than I have in decades, and for that — and for him – I’m thankful.
