My Dad

My dad. You know and love him from funny stories such as, "the crab salad" and "the Martha Stewart addict". This is an old (last Christmas) and not really good picture. I'm too lazy to scan anything or go searching for a good picture right now and this one was easy to find.

Anyway. We are so proud of my dad. He is being inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame tomorrow. The Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame is sponsored by Unified Arizona Veterans and supported by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services and the Arizona Veterans’ Hall of Fame Society, with recognition by the Office of the Governor. It annually recognizes and honors Arizona veterans who have honorably served their country through military service and who have continued to serve and inspire their fellow man with deeds and accomplishments throughout their lifetime.

Since its inception in 2001, 184 Arizona veterans from all professions and branches of the service have been inducted to the Hall. 106 recipients are living today including five Medal of Honor Recipients.

We are all going to the ceremony tomorrow. My dad is bringing a small entourage from Tucson with him. The Governor will be there. It will be a proud moment in my dad's long and illustrious list of accomplishments.

Hey Chels. I'm sorry- I deleted your comment. I am a paranoid freak and get nervous about including last names on the blog. I know, I know. It's overkill. Thanks for the sentiment though. I'll mentally post your comment in my mind. :)
