  3. Just last year I found out how many wars my father actually encountered in his lifetime.
    He was hit by a mine in Vietnam and yet he joked that at least he was sent into a navel ship that was much cooler than where he was just carried from. Being enlisted by his mother as a teen due to his parents divorce, was yet over a decade of a never ending struggle that now is much more common. (They met at an USO dance) When he came home from Ethiopia, where he helped perform dental care for free never knowing he would get visits from the Prince at the time. Completely also unaware of the imprisonment he was about to end up with. One thas as a military strict Roman Catholic family. none of us knew a Mom who could kill herself. A diagnosed Bipolar mother of. His biggest war he called in. Went three. we new the time. We also knew she was more

    1. Wow, Gwen. I'm so sorry for the lost of your mother. But you can be so proud of your father's service. Think of how many lives he must have touched!

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
