Memorial Day (2013) — Remembering My Daddy

It’s Memorial Day, when we remember the men and women who have and are serving in our armed services. Today, I remember my father. He served his country during World War II. He enlisted in the Army on October 31, 1944, at the age of 18. He stayed through the end of the war and ended his service in 1946. Prior to that he supported the war effort working in a munitions factory. He died in 1982. He and my mother are together in Long Island National Cemetery. They live on in the memories of their children.
