October 21st…dad would have been 68 today. Happy Birthday dad.
I’ve noticed a consistency about those who went to Vietnam. So many who went there died so young and those that came home are also leaving us before they reach the old age of their predecessors from previous wars. We have many World War II veterans who lived into their 80’s and 90’s but I fear we’ll see very few of our Vietnam veterans who reach this age.
Dad may not have lived to see his 68th birthday but I would have loved any years I could have had with him.
