My Dad - circa 1959
Today in church the Pastor briefly asked those of us with ties to loved ones and friends who have served or are serving in the military to please stand in recognition of their commitments and sacrifices. While I chose not to stand, I did reflect on my Dad and his brief tour of duty in Germany. I don't know much about it really, only that he was stationed there.
The date along the side of the print says June 1959. I know he went to Germany, but I don't know if that's where these were taken. So many things I don't know that I wish I did. I never really listened when he talked about it when I was younger, and now that he's gone, I can't ask.
