|David Paul Walsh - My Father - A Marine|
I come from a family of women... I have three sisters. My father was the sericeman in our family. He was a Marine. He went to Korea, but I don't know if he ever fought. It's a mystery in our family. He did not speak of these things. Some stories we just don't know, which is one reason I try to capture our stories when I scrapbook. My father died in 1990 - but not from anything related to his service to our country.
I would like thank all of our servicemen, servicewomen and their families that sacrifice for us. That are sacrificing right now, so that we may enjoy the warmth of our homes, the closeness of loved ones, our freedom to choose what jobs we want to work at, where we want to live, what we want to learn, and who we want to represent us when we vote.
We are lucky. We are blessed.
If your family is one that is giving on our behalf, I thank you.
If one of your family members is deployed right now, my prayers are with his/her safety, and your peace.
