This picture is of my father, a World War II Veteran. Thank you dad, for serving our country. The United States exists today because of your generation.
He fought in the Rhineland, in the Central Europe campaign, and then in Luzon in the Pacific Theater. He received the Philippine Liberation Ribbon, and the World War II Victory Medal.
Here is a video honoring all Veterans, including one from Alabama.
Here is a preview of songwriter Tom Goss's new single Lover which will be released November 18.
The song tells the story of a gay man whose partner is killed in battle.
Thank a Veteran today.
