My other hero, my Dad, was a War World One Army Veteran. On October 20 of this year, my other hero would have been 119 years old. My other hero passed away on May 31, 1972 when I was nineteen, one day after the day we celebrate those who served to protect us.
Pictured, is my other hero, and a picture of me. They are cropped, but his was taken in approximately 1956, when I was about three years old. The cropped photo of myself was taken in 2013. In both photos, we both are approximately the same age (60 years old).
I have always honored and respected my other hero. I still miss him.
