I am a little behind on my Veteran’s Day tribute but only because I had to go through my obscenely unorganized pile of photgraphs. But after travelling down memory lane I found the photos that I was looking for. The originals were slides (early 70s) that I had photos printed from.
My dad. He followed in his own father’s footsteps and became a pilot in the Air Force.
He flew the KC-135 during the Vietnam War. It was a tanker plane that refueled other planes while in flight.
When I was in high school, I dreamed of becoming a pilot just like him. He’s my dad, my Veteran and I love him dearly.
