Thanks, Dad

In recognition of Veteran's Day I would like to send oceans full of thanks to the men and women who have served their country with courage and dedication, and a huge hug to my dad who chose a WWII submarine as the ideal way to ride out the war; sometimes from the top of the water, often times from the bottom, and many times with the enemy raining terror down from above. I remember every day just how fortunate I am to be here. And to have you here with me. Thanks to God above and the USS Greenling for bringing you home safely. And many, many thanks to you.

Thanks. Sometimes the heart is the best speaker.

You did a great job with this, even if I'm a few days late in responding. Thanks to Amy's dad, those we've married that are veterans, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
