and was a crew chief repairing downed aircraft.
The P51 came out in the middle of the war
and repair crews had little information
on how this aircraft was put together
(structurally and electrically, etc.)
so they just did the best they could to get
the aircraft back in the air.
From the stories my father told, life in Burma was disturbing.
I remember my father and all war veterans
by dancing to honor them in Native American
Pow Wow Veteran's Dances .
This is for you Daddy, your loving daughter, Beth
Happy Memorial Day.
"My country is free, I am free, what a wonderful feeling it is to be.
Your life you risked, without regret, our freedom you did protect.
Your friends, their life did give, without fear,
they paid a price, Oh so dear.
Our flag flies high, with much pride, at a cost no gold could buy.
God bless our soldiers of today and yesteryear, those with us, and
those no longer here"
God bless you Uncle Harry....
and all the war stories
especially the cheese and the oxygen ones...
of representing our country and that the
price of "freedom" that we as a people enjoy today
is a gift we cannot take for granted,
but is possible because of men and women
like you who fought (and died) for our country.
I think often of when you were gone
when I was a little girl, doing things
that were not always so grand in your eyes,
but they were things that you knew you had
to do in order to preserve the democracy in our land.
Thank you so much Dad for never faltering
or hesitating; for always going that one step
further; for doing your best; for never giving up;
and for always believing in and loving me.
You make me soooo proud Dad and I love you!!
