My War Stories
8/19/2010 I am not really for sure what happened to my Dad ,However he was wounded in the war and was 100% Disabled Veteran all my life and my siblings it was because of men like him that fought for Freedom to keep us safe and I Honor him more than anything despite his anger I chose to Love him and respect him I know that my Dad is looking down on me today from Heaven and saying that's my Girl I finally made my Daddy a proud man because I always Loved him unconditionally mistakes and all...I know that I need to add also that My Dad despite anything that he still deserves to be called My Hero too.If a person would only look deep into a Veterans eyes they will see the Love that I too have seen..They gave their all..My Dad gave for me also...
