Dad was born on April 17, 1926 Dad was like most of those from the greatest generation...worked hard, never complained Dad also served in world war II I guess he got shot down twice..later served on Truman's ship when the president went anywhere...never could get one war story out of Dad what I know I got through my mother but she was reluctant to reveal anything my dad did not reveal himself. Just a real all around great guy. Dad has been diagnosed with colon cancer and he is going in today or tomorrow to find out how far along it is. Just thought you might like to meet my Hero. dad on the left picture they make while in bootcamp picture of Mom and Dad ...Mom has been gone for over 20 years now.
