Memorial Day 2011

He was raised in upstate New York, working farmland for $1 a day as a kid.  When he graduated high school, my father decided he wanted more out of life, and so he joined the Army.  He met my mother while stationed in Korea and worked hard to provide and save for his family.  It was through his work ethic that I learned discipline and the value of a dollar.

The Army provided him opportunities he would not have had on a farm in upstate New York, and he took those opportunities to make a better life for us.  Thank you dad, for your service to our country.  And thank you, also, for providing a good life for Mom, me and Pam.  I love you!
