Veterans Day 2009.

Today is Veterans Day.
The photo on the left is one taken of my dad in 1949.

He enlisted in the Army during the Second World War; he was stationed in Alaska during the Korean War.

He and my mother met while he was stationed at Fort Benning, near Columbus GA.
He was there long enough for me to be born at the base hospital and baptized in the base chapel.

Happy Veterans Day.

Thanks for sharing, Bob.

My Dad was Navy during WW II, but he never left Norfolk.
