    Salute to troops

    Veteran of Three Wars

    My 87 year old dad is my hero. He served in the Korean War, Vietnam, and WWII. He served each war in a different branch of the military. He started out in the Navy, then transferred to the Marines. He finally retired as Captain from the Army.
    He wears a hat with "WWII Veteran" on it. When we are out, people will come up to him to thank him for his service. He is so humble. He usually replies, "Thank you for thanking me."
