One week after Pearl Harbor my dad and his brother volunteered for the Navy. They spent the war years all over the Pacific fighting the Japanese Empire. Unfortunately "Pop" made it only to age 62 and I miss him still today. But he and his brother were great examples of ordinary men doing extraordinary things. The helped save the world from tyranny and the possible victory of fascism.
GOD BLESS them and all the living and passed men and women of the US Military. I hope we can meet your standards.
