Interesting that I came upon your post today.
My father also served in WW11. He lost both his legs. I love your post and would be honored to have you come and see my special tribute to my wonderful dad.
Have a great day

Wow........I can't think of a better way to bring the true meaning of Veteran's Day to life, and light. Your tribute to your father speaks volumes about you too. I am sure somewhere........ your father is proud to have had a daughter like you! Thanks for sharing such a personal memory. My father has passed too, and he was also in the military. Such a different time from then until now. How wonderful that you remembered when so many seem to forget.


::: teary eyed :::
This is beautiful Donna...
what great photos you have..


Such a nice post Donna!
Thanks so much for sharing,


What a handsome man indeed. And we owe him a great debt of gratitude for what he did for ALL of us as well. What a lovely post.



I adore this post, the photos are gorgeous and the sentiment just puts a lump in my throat. MY dad was in Vietnam and I have his old photos and letters they are precious.

I have tears in my eyes. What a lovely person to have for a Father. They say that the greatest thing a Father can do for his children is to love their Mother. Your Father's devotion to your Mother has touched my heart. Big Hugs to you and comfort as you remember him this day.

I just loved reading this! Thanks for sharing. :o) Amy


What a wonderful tribute to your special Veteran!! He looks just as handsome in his uniform in the last photo as he did in the first one!

Thank you for sharing, and God bless to all of our military families and the heroes in their lineage!


So Sweet...I just love this post!!!


Dear Donna,
Thank you for a special post in honor of our veterans. We have 2 vets still living in my family (sadly my dad passed in 2000).
Yesterday they were honored at an elementary school assembly with songs, pledging to our flag, and handmade THANK YOU cards. They were very touched.

Erik Wahlberg

He was and is the best man I ever knew. I am so blessed to have had him as my Grandfather for almost 40 years. He was the best man at my wedding and my wife, Leah, loved and loves him DEARLY. His whole family loves him dearly!

Grandpa, I miss you SO much and look forward to seeing you again someday. I love you!!! WE love you!


Oh how sentimental...how sweet to have that very pen esp. with the old photos! Very touching esp. the photo of your mom and dad.
Yes, every veteran deserves a tip of our hat and a thank you (even with a hug!) for what they have given for our gift (not entitlement) of freedom!!!!!!


Beautiful post Donna. It reminds me to thank my 94 year old Dad today.
Lovely photos of your Mother and Dad.

I just wrote a post about my lovely Donna crown...I adore my little crown...Thank you again.

Linda DeHart

What a beautiful way to commemorate this special day ~ lovely thoughts of a most wonderful man! We all loved him! Thanks for sharing!


What a heartfelt tribute written on behalf of your dad. I can feel the love and devotion you have for your dad. He is one of many that fought to make our country a safe place to live.


That generation was a special breed.... my Dad too, could have fit into his uniform at 80+ ... and probably still have handled his rifle with dexterity.....

Heather Bullard

Such a beautiful tribute to your Dad. My thanks to him and all those who serve and have served our nation.


Goosebumps, Donna, I have goosebumps. Such a sweet story...thank you for sharing.


Beautiful Donna! And many Blessings to you today.

Our Dad...we miss you every day...and remain so proud of who you were and what you accomplished in your life. Forever in my heart.
Your daughter #3, Nor.
(Thank you Dons...loved it so much.)

Thank you so much for this wonderful post. The photo at the end makes me want to cry and at the same time shout out my front door for everyone to hear...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Some people in this world just don't know how lucky they are to have people as special as your Father!


What a beautiful post...my thanks to our honorable veterans!!!


Big gulpy lump in my throat.
Thank you for showing us his things! I love old stuff you know. Hugs :) Missing my daddy too.


A beautiful post. Your dad sounds like a very special man.
