To my Dad
I miss you every day. My life was not the way I planned, because you were not with me.
You served your country in the early days of Vietnam and sometimes people forget the vets that were taken away at the beginning.
I am trying to put the word out every chance I get that you were there and died for our freedoms here and you are and will always be remembered. I LOVE YOU.
