It’s Free Sunday and your time has come to post what you have and want to share for our enjoyment. I was really slow on the slow shutter this last week, but I have an excuse. I was in St. Joe, MO with Dad and family celebrating his 102nd birthday. Yep he was born in 1920, was a proud WWII marine veteran.

Oh, that Marine's cap is absolutely awe inspiring and sounds like you had a great BD for him. 102 - amazing.

Whatever you do, Bob, if you haven't done it already, sit with him and write
down each and every story.

My dad was a WWII veteran, and finished his tour of duty in the occupation
of Japan. I was only 15 when he died, and never heard, let alone documented
one story of the war or of his childhood.
