Viva Veterans Day! Ode to my Daddy

So, I wrote in an earlier post how I got a new Daddy. )

Well, besides being a very good father, he is very good at many things that I am proud about.

Today I just want to bring your attention to his service to the U.S. Air Force.

My Dad is a perfectionist. Not in a controlling bad way, he is perfect in all he does.

It does not surprise me that he was an awesome crew chief. He is so handsome in this photo. ( that is him shirtless, talking to the fighter pilot) I did not see this photo until last year when he posted it on Class Mates. After I commented on it, I received 2 framed copies along with his dog tags.

Immediate crocodile tears.

I had to hug him and rush out with the photos clutched to my chest. Tears now.

I don't suppose many girls get the honor of praising their Vietnam Daddy's. Most of the Vietnam Vet Daddy's are either dead or worse.

I consider myself Blessed to have this Daddy, let alone one that I can be so proud of.

For this any many other reasons.

Happy Veteran's Day Daddy. I love you sooo much!


  1. Said beautifully from the heart

  2. Thanks Leslie and Babs.
    Not only is he a great Daddy, but he is a wonderful husband to my Saint of a Mother. That is the best gift a child can have is to have parents that love each other so much.

  3. Sounds like a pretty good guy. Felicitaciones.

  4. Chrissy,

    I am sure these words will fill his heart with love. Please pass along my thanks to your father and the many men and women who have sacrificed for all of us!

  5. Ahhhh. That made me well up. So, so sweet.
