On Wednesday, we will bury dad's urn. The military guard will be there to play taps and fold the flag. Dad was always so proud to be in the military.
Sometimes I think it would have been much better for him if he'd stayed in the military. He left about a year after I was born. Yes, I'm one of those military brats born out at Carswell Air Force base.
He was in the Army for WWII and then joined the Air Force. I didn't realize the Air Force wasn't always a separate military group but combined with the Army for a long time.
It will be a short graveside service. His brother from Seattle is coming down.
He had a good life. A long one.
