but were never the same. They left productive, loving, caring
men/women and came back incomplete and angry and "different". Yes people
say but your dad survived! I say no
I was robbed of my "daddy" that I so much loved.
He turned mean and angry and hated everything.
So I say yes his body came home but his soul and spirit and heart died.
I will remember my daddy the one who I love and miss..
in rememberance of his soul.

It was only after his death in 1996 that
we received his medals. During his tour of duty
he earned the silver star, the purple heart,
the korean war medal, the bronze star.
His gold cross riffles. My Father loved his country
he served from 1951 to 1962 very proudly.
He always taught us to love our country,
respect our countries flag,
and to stand with our hands over our hearts
and our mouths shut for the presentation of colors.
His wonderful guidance has developed a
strong respect in me for my country.
I refuse to go to our home football games because of the
disrespect of the flag and the disrespect during the
presentation of the colors.
Dad, I remember you, I miss you, but I know that you are
always with us, looking down on us,
your spirit is always present.
I will always love you Daddy.
Lovingly, his wife, children and grandchildren.
