MEMORIAL DAY 2013 & WORLD WAR II VETERANS LIKE MY DAD A MARINE AT 92

MEMORIAL DAY 2013 & WORLD WAR II VETERANS LIKE MY DAD A MARINE AT 92

 

I am fortunate to be the daughter of a proud Marine, who will be 92 soon.   He is one of the miracles who came home after 4 years of service on the front lines on Okinawa, Nagasaki and Peleliu.  The worst battles came on Peleliu, Code named Stalemate.  It lasted from June, 1944 to November 1944.  My dad was one of the 20% of the Marines who lived through it.  The picture at the right is from Peleliu during the battle.      Landing vessels from Nvy Ships Carrying Marines to Peleliu 

He has so many stories.  And, as he grows older, he remembers more stories.  I guess he less on his mind, other than his failing health, so there is more room for memories.

We always say that my dad has had the lives of 2 cats--that's 18 lives--because of all of the times he has escaped death, in the WAR and after.

Because of the GI Bill, my dad was able to attain a BS, MS and a PHD in Plant Pathology.  He is Associate Chairman and Professor Emeritus of the Plant Pathology Department at The Ohio State University.

Yes, I am a proud daughter of a wonderful man.  He is still alive, but I still think of him on Memorial Day.
