My dad was a proud member of the U.S. Navy. He served 3 years during WWII, I can only image what he went through. The war was one thing that he never wanted to talk about and I never heard him talk about it until I took my DH home with me for the first time and my dad started talking about what it had been like to serve in the Navy in the war. After that he didn't seem to mind talking about it so much and shared many wonderful stories about the war. Thanks to all of our Veterans.
