My Dad is the best.
He is a devoted husband, loving father, patient coach, active member of the community, successful businessman, and a serious Seinfeld fan.
And as if those things weren't enough, he is also a veteran. My Dad served in the US Navy when I was a little girl. I can remember going to visit him on his submarine during Christmas when I was 3 or so. When I was in grade school, Daddy came in to my history class and talk to my classmates about being in the Navy. It was really fun and everyone loved it!
I don't have many photos of his in his uniform on hand, they are all at my parents' house...but here are two I found.
That second one sure made me giggle when I found it.
So in recognition of Veterans Day, I want to send hugs and kisses to my Dad and the other members of my family that are serving in different branches of the military...and a big Thank You to all the service men and women who have and continue to represent and protect our country.
