I've been wanting to participate in Faded Charm's White Wednesday for quite a while, but time has not been my friend these past months. It still isn't, but with today being Veteran's Day, I thought I would honor my daddy and maybe qualify for WW at the same time. I hope a black and white photo is acceptable.
Joe served his country during WWII as a paratrooper in the Philippines. He wasn't a hero in the sense of headlines, but he was mine. His military years were some of his proudest memories, but at the same time, ones he was reluctant to talk about with us. Only with other veterans could he truly let go, sharing a bond we couldn't understand, nor did he want us to.
Today, I ask simply that we all keep our military in our hearts and prayers. The price they are paying for our freedoms would bankrupt us all.
