Sooo...I took my dad to the Parade today, to honor our Veterans....He's 86 now, and not in the best shape. His mind is still sharp, but his body is giving out on him.... We were right on the waterfront, downtown....Nice parade...When the Active Duty guys from Tyndall AFB were marching by? One of them happened to notice Dad's pilot jacket from WWII.....He broke ranks and came over and shook my dad's hand and thanked him for his service.... He asked Dad what he'd done...and my dad stood up and said "P51 COMBAT pilot...WWII" The other man, stepped back and saluted my dad...Dad saluted back...and then 2 other guys came over and thanked him....Word got around, and all morning long, people were coming up and thanking Dad...After the parade, they just kept coming up and shaking his hand....I thanked one of the guys for his service, and he said "We do it for you, not for ourselves..." All my emotions seemed to be behind my eyes today... Awesome Day!
