Americans -- 1976

Americans -- 1976

Memorial Day and I’m thinking of my Daddy and how proudly he marched with his fellow veterans as long as he was able.  Dad served in the First World War and this is, perhaps, his last picture (bottom row left).  He died in 1978.   I am now as old as he was in this picture.   I have posted a photo of Frank Hodson  as a young soldier and his war-time diary previously.

I didn’t know if I could scan this newspaper clipping right in the frame and through the glass.   As they say, nothing ventured…..

Miss you, Daddy.  Thank you for serving your country and your family so well.   See ya.
