I never thought too much about Veteran’s Day until this year in the aftermath of my father’s passing. Dad was a proud WW ll veteran. He would usually leave the house wearing his Air Force commemorative cap with lots of shiny pins on it. How temporary life is.
This one’s for you, Dad….
A Veteran Remembered
What was it like?
I should have asked
You tucked in the tail of a B-17 bomber
A machine gun your only company
Flying in formation at night
Above the restless waters of the Pacific
And foreign lands
Not knowing what the dark skies would bring
