Capture What Counts Photography

#21/52 – Remember

My Daddy served in the Korean War in the United States Army.  He only talked about his time in Korea once, when I was about 10 years old.  He was buried alive in a fox hole for almost 24 hours, and to this day, the smell of dirt or mud makes me feel like I am suffocating.  This photo of him was taken in November 1962.  He passed away in April 2009 and I miss him so incredibly much.

Thank you to all the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy today.  Always Remember.

  2. Thank you for sharing your pain (I hope it lessens with the sharing) And when you remember him in your prayers mention that we are thinking of him too! Lest We Forget.
