Dad's Graveside Services

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.
