This day is to remember and honor our deceased veterans. My father was a Master Sergeant in the Air Force, serving in WWII (The Big One) and Korea. As Tom Brokaw wrote, my Dad was a member of The Greatest Generation. He was a medic in M*A*S*H units. He retired in the early '60's and died in 1983. He was only 66. I miss him terribly and wish I had gotten to know him better. My now 82 year old Mom never remarried. She says he was the love of her life, a great person and husband, and she needs no one else. We should all be so lucky. Here's to you, Dad, and to all our military heroes on this Memorial Day 2007.
