This Veterans Day

Something I posted in Colorado that I would like to share.
Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question.
Anyone could answer that.
"Cake or death?"
"Eh, cake please."

A very nice tribute to your father, Charlotte.  I was quite touched to read it.

My father was also a first-generation American and fought in World War II.  Although he was Army, he spent a large portion of his war service as a Ship's Gunner in the South Pacific.  He was stationed in Australia and New Guinea, and he kept in touch with friends he made there for the rest of his life.

I also had a brother who served in Vietnam.  He was one of the lucky ones who made it home.  Then, shortly after announcing his wife's pregnency and buying a new home, he was killed by a drunk driver.

I miss them both dearly.
