I called my dad on Veterans Day to check in. My dad served in the Navy and the Army in both World War II and the Korean War. He can rarely be seen without a ball cap that celebrates his service and his pride in our military. He said he had enjoyed a parade and even was interviewed by a local news team. It made the 6 o’clock news! Nice. Good to hear his strength to participate in community life is rocking at age 85.
