PLAIN AS THE NOSE ON YOUR FACE
HOW I FAILED MY FATHER… AND HOW I AM FIXING IT
NONE SO BLIND AS THEY WHO WILL NOT SEE
YOU PROBABLY KNOW MY DAD
Everyone knows somebody like my father. I bet you are a lot like him in many ways. My Dad is the sort who always goes the extra mile. Always giving everything he had. Looking out for others. Going out of his way. Generous. Hard-working.
Dad enlisted in the Navy during WWII, as soon as he could. Following his older brother, an officer and PT boat commander. Dad served stateside, as a Photographer’s Mate, at the Philadelphia Naval Air Station. Mostly taking pictures of crashed airplanes. And the remains of the trainees who crashed them.
