I Said It Best Last Year

I'll just add a few pictures of some members of The Greatest Generation.

This is my dad in the Merchant Marines during WWII.

This is the fore section of his broken ass ship, the Sacketts Harbor.

This is the aft half of the ship.

This is my dad when they drafted him into the Army during the "Korean Conflict", completely ignoring the fact that he had already served his country during WWII.

Don't he look happy?

This is my grandfather. My dad's dad. He served during WWI.

And this is my Uncle Bobby (my mom's brother) who served in the Navy during WWII.

Thank you all for giving me a country where I am free to express my opinion in a public forum.

Thank you for protecting our Constitution.

The world I live in would not be possible without you.

Thank you.

Your dad was slim and trim in that first picture, wasn't he? WOW.
