Here’s a guest post from my 10 1/2 year old in honor of her Grandpa, who shares a birthday with the country. As my Grandma always said, he came in with a bang…
You can almost see my dad in this photo. I’ve got to get his service photo scanned because he was and is one good looking dude. My dad served in two wars, flying Hueys in Vietnam and Desert Storm. I wasn’t around yet during his Vietnam tour, but vividly remember his stint in Desert Storm. I guess you could say I’m amazingly proud of him!
Now on to my daughter’s tribute to him (I’m equally proud of her!)
On the Fourth of July
A special day
for the good ole U.S. of A.
I watch red, white, and blue
Fly through the sky
and think of you.
You were born on this day
and I have the chance to say
Thank you and Happy Birthday, too
You served in the Army to keep us free
And for that I say thank you!
