Nov 11- Day 2- 3 Veterans that you know and are thankful for.
The only Veteran that comes to mind, is my Dad. My Dad passed away in 2006 from Lung Cancer and I miss him all the time. Dad was not my paternal father; he married my Mom when I was 10 years old, and although I was not his daughter by blood, he loved me and accepted me as his, even though I was not an easy child to love... I made it clear that I did not want a Dad, but he stuck with me no matter what and was always there for me. In fact, he later adopted me but it didn't become final until I was 18. He was my hero in so many ways and I am very thankful that he came into my life; I was blessed to have him as my Dad... couldn't have had a more perfect one.
I wish I could tell you what war her served in... I think it was the Korean War, but I do know he could speak Japanese and he was in the Air Force... not much to go on, I know, but the War was not something he spoke of, an as girls it wasn't something we were interested in growing up. I regret that because I would love to know about it now.
Dad may be the only Veteran that I can name but he is not the only Veteran I am thankful for. I am thankful for all Veterans as well as the men and women that are currently serving. They all have my thanks as well as my respect.
