Memorial Day Tribute

Today is Memorial Day and I want to give a huge shout out and Thank You! for the VF-92 Fighter Squadron. This is the squadron my dad was on during the Korean War. I am very blessed my dad did not see much action in the war. Of course he would say he saw action every Saturday night! Ewww…but it still makes me laugh!

My dad has been out of the navy for over 55 years. I am thinking it is coming on to 60 years. He just turned 80 this year. The cool thing is this group of men have gotten together for the last 10 years at least in different states for a reunion. Unfortunately, because of the advancing years of most of the men, the group has not only shrunk in size, the meetings are happening far less. I think the last get together there may have only been about 5 of the original group. It is now mostly younger men.

I was blessed to be a part of this reunion about 3 years ago. We went to Sacramento. It was so cool to see the camaraderie of these men after all these years. These guys would sit up late telling stories. I think the wives ditched them early in the night too!

It does something to my heart to know that these men served our country and provided for our freedom. Thank you dad and the VF-92 Fighter Squadron.


Who do you have to thank this Memorial Day?
