My father served in the Korean and Vietnam wars.

I will always be proud that you were my Dad and we miss you so much. I wish that I had more time with you, but you are always in my heart.

I would love to hear from anyone who knew my Dad.

Dad, time passes on and you are still with me in my heart. I had a call from a wonderful person who told me a little about you. So now I see a little more of you, Dad, in my heart. You will always be with me.

It was so great to hear just one memory of you ... I hope if anyone remembers you they will contact me. Just a little memory of you helps me so much.
