I also want to remember the following:
- My half-brother, for his service in the Navy during the Korean conflict
- My grandfather, for his service in the Navy during World War I
- Lastly, but most importantly, my dad, for his Naval service during World War II. Today, I take out your medals to remember you, and the flag they laid over your coffin to wish you were still with me.
Thanks to all vets and those who support them, whether or not you believe in the reason they were deployed.
