Father's Day Card #2

Wednesday, June 3, 2015
This card is so appropriate for today's post.
My daddy served in the Navy during WWll and this week Monday -Wednesday he was on the honor trip to Washington DC.  We went to the airport last night to see him and all the others come in.  What a wonderful event they put on for these veterans.
While we waited I captured this photo of my mom looking at my dads Navy photo.  This is what he looked like when they met.  I'm sure there were a lot of memories flooding her mind
 My sister, Vicky, stayed with Mom while Dad was gone because her hubby (a Vietnam Veteran) was my Dad's escort for the trip. The 3 sweet girls are Vicky's grand daughters.  They made posters and were excited to see both of their grandpas come home.
 A flag and bag pipe processional
 There were MANY who came that were in wheel chairs, but my Daddy walked strong. I enjoyed seeing him greet all the people who came to welcome them home.
 What a treasure to witness the love my parents still share after 68+ years.
 I guess this could technically be called a Sentimental Sunday Post but while it is fresh in my memory  I wanted to post it today with the Father's Day Card
Thanks for stopping by!
