Veteran's Day

That's my dad, getting what I think is an Air Medal during Vietnam.   I have that jacket he's wearing in the photo.  I have that medal, along with the rest, in a box.  My dad's been gone for 26 years now, and one of the things that I regret was that he didn't live long enough to tell me about his military experiences.  I probably cherish those remnants of his time in the Air Force more than he would, were he still alive.  What a messed up country we were, to treat our Vietnam veterans so shamefully.  God Bless every veteran.  Thank you for the freedom and the sacrifice.
