Veterans Day

My Dad My Hero

My father joined Army

12 August 1949 he was one of the few from his company that came back alive in September 1952. He served in the Korean War.

The Korean War, often referred to as “The Forgotten War,” was fought from June 25, 1950, to July 27, 1953. This Page is dedicated to thanking and honoring all the veterans of the Korean War, their families, and especially those who lost loved ones in that war.

I was lucky my father came home married my mother and later had me 😊

One time my father spoke about the war that I recall and it still made him cry, I was doing a project in jr high about Veterans Day. And I picked Korean War. Had I known what my father saw and lived through I would have picked something else .

He told me he couldn’t tell me everything but what he did share I saw him as an even greater man than I knew he already was.

The Hangul text in the banner says “6-25,” or “yoog-ee-o” in Korean. South Koreans often call the Korean War, “6-25,” because this war started, June 25, 1950

What is a veteran ?

They are active or discharged retired or a reserve

They wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America for an amount up and including his or her life.

If you want to thank a soldier be the kind of American worth fighting for.

Don’t thank a judge ,lawyer or even our congress and senate for the freedom or defending your rights.

Thank a veteran

Enjoy reading that book?

Don’t thank the author for freedom of the press

Enjoy your freedom to pray and worship?

Don’t thank the preacher for freedom of religion

Thank a veteran

My father is my hero

I miss you every day.
