As I think about July 4th, I instantly think of my dad! That's the cute guy at the top of this blog. He served his country in World War ll and almost died doing so. He was in the Air Force,was shot down and missing for quite some time. I have his journal telling of the ordeal and it is still very difficult for me to read. The flag you see was presented to me at his full military funeral back in September. If you have never been to a military funeral, it is very touching, to say the least. I have his box of medals that he was so very proud of, although I can not fully comprehend what he went through to receive them. He loved to tell his war stories over and over, like so many other men who fought for our country. This is his first July 4th in his Heavenly home with Jesus, and who knows, he may be sitting around telling those stories with his buddies that he last saw when their plane was shot down. I can only imagine!!!
Happy July 4th to all of you and I am so proud to be an American!
