I pulled down my dad’s flag from my closet and some of the spent rounds from his veteran’s sendoff. Air force.
I got his 1911 from the safe and took this pic and then lost it. Born 1929, Passed away 1989. Lost a real man who would just as soon put a punk in his place as show his grandkids the correct way to hold a rifle or treat a woman (especially Grandma).
My deepest sympathy for the loss of your father and a Patriot. Thank you for sharing a memory.
