A Hero's Birthday

Today my father is 81 years old. Already

He must be amazed at how quickly the years have flewn…
I know I am.
But when you look back over all the years 
and the wonderful life he has lived…
you see how you get to age 81. Already.

I am proud to say that
my father served in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years…
and because of that I honor him twice…
on back-to-back 
special days…
Veteran’s Day, November 11th
followed by
his birthday, November 12th.

When you grow up with a 
and loving father…
you are the beneficiary 
of a happy childhood.

I admire so many of his qualities…
the least of which
is the virtue of 

My Dad.  My Hero.

I may be considered a “military brat”,
 but if you have to be a brat…
it's the best kind.

So today I salute my father…age 81. Already.

U.S. Veteran
Amazing father
Forever.My hero.


Happy Birthday, Dad
