Thoughts From My Father on Veteran's Day

You may not know this
The hardest part of war was
Leaving you behind

I gave my dad a Veteran's Day card to thank him for his service. He was drafted and had to go to Vietnam while was still quite young . . . barely a few years old, I guess. He shared the above thoughts with me. It twisted me up a bit inside. I am glad he came back - I couldn't imagine growing up without him (or my sisters, who would not exist if he had not come back!).
