Hey...Next week is Memorial Day,for most folks it's the unofficial start of summer. espescially out here where I live, a couple miles from Seaside Park N.J. They don't think about what the meaning of this holiday is. Anyway I will remember my father Francis J. he was in the Army from 1937 to the end of WWII. He was with General Patton as an infantryman,and was on the second wave on Omaha Beach, and he and his company never stopped fighting until it was all over. My father never talked to me about the ugliness of that conflict. He would only tell my mother things..pretty wild stories. I lost my Dad last October to several illnesses. He was one month shy of his 90th. birthday. I miss him. Here's to my Dad and to all the other men and women who served this great nation in our time of need. God Bless each and everyone of them.
